Following the path started last week with Alicia´s Story, our partners of Singular Logic from Greece, have also produced and edited this video that intends to show real life examples of Cloud4all impact.

The second video of Cloud4all Stories Series shows how a couple of pensioners with different needs can watch tv together (using different settings).  Bob & Anna have recently retired and think is time to enjoy life. They both go for groceries, walk around the park and enjoy their favourite TV series very often. Bob has a low vision impairment, whereas Anna still sees ok. Hereby when watching TV, Bob needs a high contrast and audio description so that he can fully understands the context and action of the movie. This is a burden for Anna, nonetheless thanks to Cloud4all and GPIII, a solution can be reached. After personalising the settings, Bob can plug-in the headphones in order to get the audio description there while the main audio remains the same. Contrast can be adjusted to the mid-level so that they both  can coexist. Whenever Bob leaves the room, Anna can easily deactivate Bob´s features and get back to normal. Bob can easily do the same.

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.
