Cloud4all Alicia´s Story

There is a new video from the Cloud4all Story series produced and edited by Singular Logic. The intention behind these series is to give insights about the real impact, use and application of Cloud4all. This time the story of Alicia is depicted. Alicia is a 70 years old pensioner living in a house for the elderly. Additionally, she suffers some sort of visual impairment. Even though she is willing to catch up with the current world news, Alicia sometimes has problems due to her special needs when surfing the web. She requires a high contrast and a big font size at least in order to navigate easily. Nonetheless these settings are not easy to adjust, therefore every time she uses a computer, she needs help for that. Here is where magic happens with Cloud4all and GPII due to the fact that only by keying-in a USB pen-drive all these adjustments are made automatically without the need to seek external help. Our partners from Singular Logic have successfully shown a down to earth application of Cloud4all.
