    5. 5. ICCHP 2008 2. GVAM Project <ul><li>OBJECTIVES: Technological solutions in media portable, accessible, positioning system, and universal access. </li></ul><ul><li>CONSORTIUM: R&D project of the Spanish Ministry of Industry carried out by Dos de Mayo Ltd., the firm that leads the team integrated by CESyA-Carlos III University of Madrid, CNSE Foundation, ONCE Foundation and the General Directorate of Museums and Cultural Heritage under the Ministry of Culture of Spain. </li></ul><ul><li>Initial scenario: Costume Museum of Madrid. </li></ul><ul><li>Previous Work: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Audio Guides (only audio, not accesible)‏ </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Guides (SL, Caption-> people audio disability): Louvre Museum, Tate Modern, Guggenheim (Bilbao), Reina Sofía (Madrid), etc. </li></ul></ul></ul>
