New Cloud4all videos on YouTube!

Check out our latest videos, explaining how Cloud4all can benefit users with different needs:

  • Cloud4all behind the scenes: How personalisation works for Alicia“: Alicia is a 78-year old immigrant who started experiencing macular degeneration. She’s never liked technology and is having increasing difficulty with it.  However, as she is losing her vision – she finds that she has to figure out how to use technology or lose her access to information. Last time she went to her therapist, the therapist introduced her to a screen reader to read things aloud when she can’t read them. She still prefers to read, and uses the screen reader only when she needs to.  Mostly it is too complicated to move about the screen with the screen reader. Even when she can see the screen – it is often too confusing for her. To keep sharp and informed, she resolved to read an online international newspaper daily but she gets lost with all the information, links and banners; and the Black-on-White text tires her eyes a lot.
  • Cloud4all behind the scenes: How personalisation works for Bob“: Bob is losing his sight lately. He prefers to use “regular” configuration for Windows (with just the cursor being enlarged) and move his face close to the screen to read as much as possible. However, it does not work everywhere or with all devices. Light conditions, the screen size, its angle, the kind of content or his fatigue greatly affect his ability to read the screen. When this happens, he finds that he needs different Windows features turned on and configured even during the same day and on the same device. He is never sure which one will work in each situation though.
