While computing devices have highly customisable user interfaces,
common configuration requirements such preferred input device,
language, font, text size or colour have to be repeated on each device
used. Cloud4All is an EU project that is working to create an open
public infrastructure which defines a personal profile to be used to
configure any device. The profile is stored in the cloud and retrieved
by the user whenever they encounter a new device. This will give a
consistent experience on personal and public devices, such as cash and
ticket machines. It has additional benefits for accessibility for
those with some form of impairment such as a disability or difficult
physical location such as bright lighting. The project is working on
defining the profile ontology and format, creating the cloud based
infrastructure and protoyping applications that respond to
profile-based configuration settings. Eventually developer tools will
be created to provide easy access.

OpenDirective are part of the Cloud4all project consortium and their
contribution includes the development of a prototype application. This
application, Maavis, provides ultra simple access to cloud and local
media or communications and is designed for use cases that include
older people and those with dementia or other disabilities. The
application is designed to adapt to specific user and platform
needs. This talk introduce the concepts of cloud4all and the impact it
will have on both cloud connected and offline computing devices.
