                      AEGIS (Open Accessibility Everywhere: Groundwork, Infrastructure,
                      Standards) is a research project funded by the European Commission,
                      working in the area of accessibility and independent living. AEGIS devel-

                                During the fourth and the final year of the project and in view of our final
                                demonstration events, a page was structured in our web site (http://
                                www.aegis-project.eu/) where all already released solutions of AEGIS
                                can be downloaded from (see at http://www.aegis-project.eu/
                                index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=175&Itemid=72). For
                                each solution, a short description can be found, the languages avail-
                                able for it, the direct link from where the solution can be downloaded,
                                the h/w and s/w requirements as well as link to any training material
                                that has been prepared and hosted in the project e-learning platform.

                                During the last year of the project, a page on the Open Accessibility
                                Framework (OAF) has also been created. OAF is a framework that has
                                been introduced by AEGIS and serves for developing accessible ICT in
                                a way that technical challenges are being approached holistically and
                                methodologically. All AEGIS solutions fall under one or more steps of
                                the OAF, as follows:
                                    Creation
                                             Step 1: Define Accessible

Another place to find the AEGIS solutions is the Open Accessibility Framework Group
(OAEG). OAEG has been established and maintained in the context of the AEGIS IP project
and can be accessed at www.oaeg.org, www.oaeg.eu or through the AEGIS project website
(www.aegis-project.eu/).

                                 The Open Accessibility Everywhere Group (OAEG) is a coordinated
                                 effort of the AEGIS Consortium that was officially launched at the No-
                                 vember 2012 Conference of AEGIS aiming to provide an inventory of
                                 all open source accessibility communities and the techniques and ap-
                                 proaches they use. Thus, the OAEG anticipates to be “the community
                                 of the communities” in the open accessibility world.
                                 In order to achieve this, a blog aggregator, an open source accessibil-
                                 ity repository and a mobility schemes section have been developed.
                                 Relevant links and updates on news in the area assist with further
                                 awareness about the field. In addition, a standards section exists with
                                 references to all standards related to AEGIS fields of work.
                                 Next to that, OAEG is materialising the Open Accessibility Framework
                                 (OAF) of AEGIS, through clustering all its own, but also the external to
                                 AEGIS, open source accessibility developments in all major platforms
                                 in desktop, web and mobile section, along the 6 defined steps of OAF.

                                  The open source repository of OAEG is a software repository aiming
                                  to aggregate all open source accessibility software items developed
                                  fully, in part or outside the project. All visitors are able to add their own
                                  software to the database of OAEG simply by filling in the respective
                                  online form. What is worth noting here is that the SVN link leads to the
                                  official (external to AEGIS) page that each s/w maintains and not to a
                                  local page of AEGIS (unless the s/w has not been published any-
                                  where yet). In this way, OAEG achieves to provide always up-to-date

info on each s/w. All (so far developed) AEGIS open source solutions can be found therein,
whereas in 2011, OATSoft s/w repository database (www.oatsoft.org) has been merged in the
OAEG database, and, as such, s/w solutions of OATSoft can be also accessed through the OAEG
repository. This effort was initiated in AEGIS, as a means of sustainability of OATSoft. In the open
source repository, the visitor can select to view the available solutions either per title, per user
group or per type (where different types correspond to OAF steps).

                                 As aforementioned, OAEG, among other, has materialised the Open
                                 Accessibility Framework of the project. In the sense that it provides the
                                 clustering of the accessibility items of each type of the most widely
                                 used platforms in desktop, mobile and web including AEGIS contribu-
                                 tions. OAF section in OAEG can be accessed at http://www.oaeg.eu/
                                 index.php?option=com_jumi&fileid=162&Itemid=36. The visitor can
                                 select the platform of his/her interest and have the overview of acces-
                                 sibility in its context as well as where AEGIS is placed in them, follow-

                                 tions can be found, whereas links to the semantics of AEGIS, when-
                                 ever applicable, are also enlisted for the AEGIS solutions.

It should be highlighted that in the context of OAEG, there is the potential for the visitors to con-
tribute, join and comment OAEG content (all sections of it) through the respective forms. While
OAEG has been maintained until the end of the project, the intention is to link to the EASTIN
portal (/www.eastin.eu) in order to allow its sustainability after the end of the project.

                                   The AEGIS Success Stories
                                AEGIS has been able to bring several outcomes on an international
                                platform in the past few years, supported by the critical feedback from
                                the end-users and input from the wider community. The following pro-
                                vides an overview of what we consider to be the most successful pro-
                                ject results in the desktop, web and mobile environments, based on
                                their uptake by the community.

                                Personas
                                The AEGIS personas were released on the project website in January
                                2010. Accessible two-page pdf files are available for download for
                                each of the 17 personas that were created within the project. Accord-
                                ing to the open accessibility philosophy of the project, the personas
                                are licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Li-
                                censes so that third parties can freely update and adjust the personas
                                desired, thus supporting further uptake.
                                The web page from which the personas can be downloaded at the AE-
                                GIS website has had 5,139 page views (d.d. August 8th 2012), which
                                is the second highest ranking after the index page. In addition, the per-
                                sonas page is equally the most frequent landing and exit page of the
                                website. Moreover, several (informal) notifications of uptake of the per-
                                sonas have reached the project consortium. Usage of the personas for
                                educational purposes seems to be especially popular.

                                GnomeShell Magnifier is a built-in magnifier for the GNOME Shell
                                desktop on Linux. AEGIS' work has involved adding magnification to
                                GNOME 3.4 as well as upcoming improvements in GNOME 3.6 ad-
                                dressing screen enhancement such as: lightness inversion, RGB con-
                                trast/brightness control and crosshairs for mouse tracking.
                                This magnifier is now part of GNOME 3 and has been shipping for
                                over a year now being used by low-vision users throughout Europe.

odt2daisy
The goal of odt2daisy is to integrate DAISY export functionality into a mainstream office suite,
i.e. OpenOffice.org and (since January 2011) LibreOffice, while previous DAISY authoring tools
were separate from office suites. (The Save-as-DAISY extension for Microsoft Office did not ex-
ist at the time when the AEGIS project proposal was originally submitted.)
odt2daisy 2.0 was released on SourceForge on 9 November 2009. By end of August 2012, od-
t2daisy had been downloaded 9436 times (296 times per month on average). Furthermore, sev-
eral DAISY production centres have taken up our results as indicated below:
   Both odt2daisy and odt2braille are used by Progrebraille Helen Keller (PHK). Luisterpunt
   (the Flemish Library for Audio Books and Braille), a customer of PHK, submitted a poster on
   odt2daisy and odt2braille to the AEGIS 2011 Conference. This poster explains how od-
   t2daisy and odt2braille enable production centres to use the OpenDocument Format as a
   single source for both DAISY and Braille, which leads to a more efficient process.
   Quoted from Luisterpunt’s poster for the AEGIS Conference 2011: The Flemish Library for
   Audio Books and Braille Books (Luisterpunt) for people with print disabilities wants to in-
   crease the size and quality of the collection through collaborative innovation with production
   centers, developers and readers convergence between Braille and DAISY production the
   use of formats that can be exchanged with other libraries. To achieve these goals the library
   and production centres “Blindenzorg Licht en Liefde” and “Progebraille Helen Keller” recently
   initiated a new production method with OpenOffice.org Writer and the opensource exten-
   sions odt2braille and odt2daisy. The new method enables more efficient production by using
   the same text file from Writer as a source for both Braille and DAISY the use of 'styles' in
   modern text formatting tools for creating accessible documents BrailleNet (Paris, France),
   Curtin University Centre for Accessible Technology (CUCAT, Perth, Australia),
   Alternative Media Access Centre (AMAC, University System of Georgia, USA),
   Association for the Blind in Western Australia (ABWA).
   Part of the odt2daisy code has been integrated in the DAISY Pipeline by the DAISY Consor-
   tium: http://data.daisy.org/projects/pipeline/doc/scripts/OdtToDtbook.html.
   odt2daisy has been integrated in Dedicon’s altText conversion portal (this was mentioned in
   Dedicon’s presentation at the 4th European eAccessibility Forum (Paris, 12 April 2010).
   odt2daisy and odt2braille have been integrated in Create&Convert, a package of open-
   source programs that can quickly translate electronic documents into an accessible alterna-
   tive format. Create&Convert is devised by the JISC Regional Support Centre Scotland North
   & East. It helps educational institutions comply with the Equality Act 2010
   www.equalities.gov.uk/equality_act_2010.aspx, which came into force on 1 October of 2010
   in the UK. Create&Convert is available at http://eduapps.org/?page_id=10.

                                were either separate from office suites or tied to a specific embosser.
                                odt2braille was first released (officially) on SourceForge on 4 August
                                20. By end of August 2012, odt2braille (and the accompanying Braille
                                fonts for the preview window) had been downloaded just over 8350
                                times (354 times per month on average). It is also worth mentioning
                                that odt2braille was selected as SourceForge Project of the Month in
                                March 2011. The creation of odt2Braille versions for Linux and 64-bit
                                Mac OS X should further strengthen the take-up.

MOBILE
Tecla Access
Tecla Access is a set of open software (and hardware) tools that facilitate access to electronic
devices for people with mobility impairments.
Tecla Access app (now in 0.6 Beta) has been available from Android Market (now Google Play)
since August 2010 (play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ca.idi.tekla). By August 2012, the
Tecla Access app had been downloaded over 2000 times. Interested companies already took
onboard the work by the project:
   The Tecla Access Shield (hardware) is being commercialized by a Canadian company
   called Komodo OpenLab (komodoopenlab.com/tecla/tecla-for-android/the-shield/). Komodo
   OpenLab maintains a YouTube channel with a series of videos on Tecla Access
   (www.youtube.com/user/KomodoOpenLab?ob=0&feature=results_main).        A      highlight:
   youtu.be/Ur6LDbAdOdg
    Translations into 7 language are available so far: French, Spanish, German, Italian,
   Swedish, Mexican Spanish, and UK English. Translations into 18 additional languages are
   underway (crowdin.net/project/tecla-access), provided also by pilot partners.

Accessible Contact Manager and Phone Dialer
The phone dialer and contact manager makes the contact functionality in Android accessible to
people with visual and cognitive disabilities. The key innovations of the application are: (1) hav-
ing an ad-hoc accessibility service to improve Android's accessibility messages; (2) allowing
users to interact with the application by simply drawing a gesture on the screen to perform an
action; and (3) offering a tool that manages the users to actually record the voice and/or de-
scription of the users on the agenda to allow an easier comprehension and recognition of each
contact. Compared to the state of the art on Android, the Accessible Contact Manager and
Phone Dialer enhances accessibility features of the contacts agenda and provides an accessi-
ble approach that is not offered though previous versions of Android 4.0 platform “Ice Cream
Sandwich”.
The Accessible Contact Manager and Phone Dialer for Android was released on 24 May 2011
in the Android Market. The first version that was released was available for the Android 2.2
Platform. Currently, a Beta release of the product which supports Android 4.0 "Ice Cream
Sandwich" and its new accessibility features, including the explore-by-touch method, is avail-
able. This last version also covers and supports all Android platforms available since Android
2.2, making it fully compatible and scalable.
The application was downloaded 2700+ times by the end of August 2012. People from the
United States are the main users of the application with 25,2% of downloads, followed by
Spanish users (14 %) and other European countries such as The United Kingdom or The Neth-
erlands.

                                      Our Demonstration Events
                                          and their Results
                                 In total, 16 demonstration events were organised by the AEGIS part-
                                ners within the period March—August 2012. The events took place in
                                Belgium, Spain, Sweden and UK. Eight of them were organised by the
                                test sites themselves and the rest in conjunction with other local, na-
                                tional or international events.
                                The AEGIS booths at the various events were visited by over 5000 per-
                                sons including a wide variety of stakeholders: people with different
                                types of disabilities, experts, carers, developers, governmental actors,
                                other stakeholders, etc.
                                19 of the solutions developed within the AEGIS project have been dem-
                                onstrated during these events and the audience has been encouraged
                                to try the solutions for a longer period (1 month or more) on their own at
                                home and then provide online feedback back to the Consortium. In or-
                                der to accommodate this, the “Downloads” section of the web site
                                hosted all AEGIS open source solutions, providing key info as well as
                                links to download from. Feedback forms for each solution were imple-
                                mented for online completion and submission. Feedback forms were
                                also distributed and filled-in at the face-to-face events.

                                In total, 607 feedback forms have been submitted at the different pilot
                                demonstration events in Belgium, England, Spain and Sweden. 103
                                feedback forms came from developers, 328 from stakeholders and 176
                                from end users.
                                The overall impression of the applications was positive (see figures be-
                                low). For all the applications together, more than 100 out of 176 sub-
                                mitted feedback forms from end users stated that the user would like to
                                adopt and use the application in their daily life. And more than 200 out
                                of 328 feedback forms from stakeholders stated that the stakeholder
                                would consider recommending the application to others. 75 feedback
                                forms from developers showed that they would consider using the ap-
                                plication at work.
                                We have used scales divided into 5 degrees for the following ratings:
                                Pleasant (5) – Unpleasant (1), Useful (5) – Useless (1) and Easy to use
                                (5) – Difficult to use (1). When describing the ratings within this docu-
                                ment we have chosen to write for example very pleasant – pleasant –
                                average – quite unpleasant and unpleasant.
                                The results are shown below:

                                              Brussels, Belgium, 28-30 November 2011
                                The AEGIS project organised its final Workshop and 2nd International
                                Conference entitled ―Accessibility Reaching Everywhere‖ on 28-30 No-
                                vember 2011 in Brussels, bringing together both end-users (people with
                                disabilities) as well as platform and application accessibility developers,
                                representative organisations, the Assistive Technology industry, and
                                policy makers. This 3-days event came ahead of the European Day of
                                People with Disabilities that was marked by the European Commission
                                via a policy conference (1-2 December 2011), in close cooperation with
                                the European Disability Forum (EDF).




                                The workshop on 28 November focused on the realisations of the AE-
                                GIS (Open Accessibility Everywhere: Groundwork, Infrastructure, Stan-
                                dards) project and provided attendees the opportunity to try out all out-
                                comes of the project. The demonstrated products offer barrier-free ac-
                                cess to desktop, mobile and web applications, are open source based
                                and freely available.
                                The conference on 29-30 November gathered a wide array of experts,
                                end-users and their representative organisations, designers and devel-
                                opers, as well as gatekeepers (service providers) and local, national
                                and European policy makers from 28 countries to discuss scientific and
                                policy developments in accessible technology; showcase relevant pro-
                                jects and initiatives in the area of assistive technology.

The event was free of charge and took place at the Diamant Conference and Business Cen-
tre, Boulevard A. Reyerslaan 80, 1030 Brussels.
The event has been an outstanding platform for the AEGIS project to present not only the AE-
GIS work, but also many relevant initiatives from across the world that relate to ICT AT
(Assistive Technologies). In total 47 presentations (44 papers), spread over eight sessions,
were presented to the participants.
The AEGIS conference concluded with an Awarding Ceremony to distinguish outstanding par-
ticipation in the following categories:
    Best accessibility project in the spirit of AEGIS,
     awarded to Edwige Pissaloux for "Vision For Assis-
     tive Technologies".
    Best AEGIS Conference paper in the spirit of AEGIS,
     awarded to Shadi Abou-Zahra for his paper ―Web
     Accessibility Guidance, Evaluation Methodologies,
     and Research Explorations‖.
    Best AEGIS Conference poster in the spirit of AEGIS,
     awarded to Guillermo Peris Fajarnes for the
     "EYES2021" paper.
The proceedings are available at www.epr.eu/aegis/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/
AEGIS_Conference_proceedings-final.pdf, bringing together all accepted, reviewed and pre-
sented papers at the Conference in the different sessions over the two days. The proceedings
start with the opening address by Helga Stevens, Senator and Flemish Member of Parliament,
who provides an "embedded" view on the impact ICT AT can have on the life of people with
disabilities.
All papers presentations have been uploaded in PDF format to the conference website
www.aegis-conference.eu so that the reader can combine this with the papers enclosed in the
proceedings. The same page also provides the Workshop presentations.
Finally, we would also like to highlight the videos that were recorded during and shortly after
the events. These can be viewed via www.youtube.com/user/AccessForAlleu.
The proceedings conclude with a snapshot of the many pictures that were taken at the three
event days and a list of the attendees. A full "photographic" coverage is available on the public
AEGIS Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Aegis.Accessible), which we highly recommend
to "like" and join.
We would like to thank the entire AEGIS project management team for their support in making
this a successful 3-days event, and in particular also to the EPR team for the successful or-
ganisation.

                                The first project video was made available, both via the project website,
                                as well as YouTube (http://youtu.be/u7II3aXKZgE), and has been
                                propagated to other websites. The video focuses on explaining the
                                aims and objectives of the project, identifying the impact for end-users
                                through direct interviews with participants in the 1st International Con-
                                ference, and showing the highlights of the 1st International Conference.
                                Subtitles are available in Chinese, Czech, Dutch, English, French, Ger-
                                man, Greek, Spanish and Swedish. The video was also shown during
                                the breaks at the 2nd AEGIS conference, as well as was shown non-
                                stop at the European day of People with Disabilities Policy Event
                                (EDPWD) in Brussels on 2-3 December 2012 at the AEGIS booth.
                                The project created 2 additional videos:
                                      the final project video that enlists all the outcomes of the project,
                                       illustrated with scenery from piloting, testing and development

                                      the Open Accessibility Framework (OAF) video that explains the
                                       different steps of the OAF, as recorded at the final AEGIS project
                                       conference which took place in Brussels on 29-30 November
                                       2011.




                                The final project video starts with an explanation of the OAF, and then
                                covers the different developments that took place in the areas of the
                                web, desktop and mobile. Throughout the entire video, every element is
                                illustrated with supporting videos, either from the developer part, or
                                from the end-user part, also using scenes with end-users. The video
                                has also been integrated in the project website's opening page.

The final video has been launched through the AccessForAlleu YouTube channel to increase
visibility (direct link: http://youtu.be/X8miIhqQ3MU).
Additionally, also the OAF video was created. After a short introduction, the presentation Mr.
Peter Korn gave at the AEGIS final project conference on 29 November 2011 in Brussels, Bel-
gium is presented, mixed with slides that illustrate the 6 steps of the OAF.
This separate video was created to better explain the approaches followed in the AEGIS de-
velopments, as well as to guide future developers in their work.
It has been integrated in the OAEG sections of the project website and the actual OAEG web-
site.
The OAF video has also been launched through the AccessForAlleu YouTube channel to in-
crease visibility. (direct link: http://youtu.be/qmTM_wypgWA).




These videos will also be shown during the forthcoming European Day of People with Disabili-
ties policy event, which will take place in Brussels, Belgium in December 2012.


Both videos have been subtitled in Czech, Dutch, English, German, French, Greek and Swed-
ish.

                                                      Training platform
                                 1.-Introduction
                                 One of the main objectives of AEGIS Training activities (WP5.2) was to
                                 improve the confidence and knowledge of AEGIS end users (pilot par-
                                 ticipants and assistants), consortium partners and developers, in using
                                 the tools developed in AEGIS. To do this, a methodology was estab-
                                 lished for the training activities and an accessible customised e-learning
                                 training platform (http://aegis.bluepoint- it.ro/browse.php) was devel-
                                 oped together with training materials, training courses, training work-
                                 shops and training evaluations forms. AEGIS training activities have
                                 taken place throughout the project lifetime and its outcomes will con-
                                 tinue to be available even after this.
                                 2.-Training methodology, training platform
                                 AEGIS training activities have followed a blended training methodology,
                                 consisting of a combination of online training, with face to face training,
                                 and with the support of printed training materials. In order to address the
                                 training needs of AEGIS, the activity A5.2.1 Training framework and
                                 tools provided an accessible e-learning environment to support these
                                 training needs. The platform used is intuitive and allows enough flexibil-
                                 ity to embed various additional supporting training material, ranging
                                 from streamed videos, images, documents to emulators and document
                                 repositories. A common training course structure was defined. To also
                                 allow offline training, all course content can be exported as a SCORM
                                 compliant zip file, which provides offline an easy and accessible inter-
                                 face. The platform is online and can be accessed at aegis.bluepoint-
                                 it.ro/
                                 3.-Training activities for developers
                                 Within the training activities for developers, specific material was devel-
                                 oped to present the necessary content for training regarding AEGIS
                                 framework and tools. The training material includes technical on-line tu-
                                 torials with step by step instructions. The training courses for developers
                                 are available online at aegis.bluepoint-it.ro/.
                                 The developers’ curriculum covers the following topics: Open accessible
                                 desktop, Specification and Requirements of web application accessibil-
                                 ity, Requirements and specifications towards an accessible framework
                                 for mobile devices, AEGIS Ontology’s interface, How to create accessi-

                                 AEGIS Open Accessibility Framework – OAF.
                                 Examples of the courses dedicated to developers and available online
                                 are: Accessible Contact Manager and Phone Dialer for Android, Adding

4.-Training activities for pilots and end users
The activities A5.2.3 Training activities for end users and A5.2.4 Training activities for pilots
have been organised following the blended methodology. The courses for pilots and end-
users were developed in each phase of the pilots and actualised in accordance with the new
prototypes and functionalities that were added in an iterative process during the project, be-
fore each of the pilots phase started. The training courses for the pilots were structured into
four different groups of courses, one for each country where the pilots were running: Belgium,
United Kingdom, Sweden and Spain.

                                                  AEGIS - FP7-224348: find more info at http://www.AEGIS-project.eu/
The courses on each country were organised according the different Pilot phase and the nature of
the prototypes.
      the first part focuses on the hardware and software requirements
      the second part focuses on detailed explanation
    the final part in all prototype courses (whenever this is available) consists of a detailed
   video, showing the respective prototype




Illustration 2: Online course with supporting video


Training sessions and workshops have been organised by the pilot sites, bringing together all end
-users (people with disabilities, care-takers, experts, tutors). These were supported with the pro-
vided prototypes, as well as the learning material uploaded to the platform, and the supporting
videos.
The support provided through the training environment was highly valued by the beneficiaries and
developers, both in terms of knowledge acquired but also in order to make better use of AEGIS
tools and outcomes. The training contributed substantially to the smooth operation of the pilots
with developers and beneficiaries. AEGIS training activities have shown that the e-learning plat-
form usage and subsequent content provision constitutes an effective and efficient method to de-
liver the training, while at the same time sharing information and content.

End date: August 2012 The AEGIS consortium AEGIS (Open Accessibility Everywhere: Groundwork, Infrastructure, Standards) is a research project funded by the European Commission, working in the area of accessibility and independent living. AEGIS devel- ops an Open Accessibility Framework (OAF) consisting of open source accessible interfaces and accessibility toolkits for developers, alongside accessible applications and open source assistive technologies for users. AEGIS will produce this framework through user research and prototype The Project is co- development with current and next generation ICT. This should deeply funded by the embed accessibility into future ICT for the open desktop, rich Internet ap- European plications, and mobile devices. AEGIS results will be referred to standards Commission, 7th Framework organisations where appropriate, and made available under open source Programme licenses to the greatest extent possible.
  • 2. PAGE 2 Our final results (...and where to find them) The AEGIS Open Accessibility Everywhere Group During the fourth and the final year of the project and in view of our final demonstration events, a page was structured in our web site (http:// www.aegis-project.eu/) where all already released solutions of AEGIS can be downloaded from (see at http://www.aegis-project.eu/ index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=175&Itemid=72). For each solution, a short description can be found, the languages avail- able for it, the direct link from where the solution can be downloaded, the h/w and s/w requirements as well as link to any training material that has been prepared and hosted in the project e-learning platform. Illustration: AEGIS demonstrators/downloads page in the web site. During the last year of the project, a page on the Open Accessibility Framework (OAF) has also been created. OAF is a framework that has been introduced by AEGIS and serves for developing accessible ICT in a way that technical challenges are being approached holistically and methodologically. All AEGIS solutions fall under one or more steps of the OAF, as follows: Creation Step 1: Define Accessible Step 2: Stock Components Step 3: Developer / Authoring Tools AEGIS - FP7-224348: find more info at http://www.AEGIS-project.eu/
  • 3. ISSUE 7 PAGE 3 Use Step 4: Platform Support Step 5: The Application itself Step 6: Assistive Technologies The OAF 6 steps are explained in the website page and are also explained through a video that can be accessed therein (subtitles are available in Dutch, English, German, Greek, Czech, Spanish and French). Illustration: AEGIS OAF page with video in the AEGIS web site. The clustering of AEGIS contributions under the OAF steps can also be found in the same page. Another place to find the AEGIS solutions is the Open Accessibility Framework Group (OAEG). OAEG has been established and maintained in the context of the AEGIS IP project and can be accessed at www.oaeg.org, www.oaeg.eu or through the AEGIS project website (www.aegis-project.eu/).

  • 4. PAGE 4 The Open Accessibility Everywhere Group (OAEG) is a coordinated effort of the AEGIS Consortium that was officially launched at the No- vember 2012 Conference of AEGIS aiming to provide an inventory of all open source accessibility communities and the techniques and ap- proaches they use. Thus, the OAEG anticipates to be “the community of the communities” in the open accessibility world. In order to achieve this, a blog aggregator, an open source accessibil- ity repository and a mobility schemes section have been developed. Relevant links and updates on news in the area assist with further awareness about the field. In addition, a standards section exists with references to all standards related to AEGIS fields of work. Next to that, OAEG is materialising the Open Accessibility Framework (OAF) of AEGIS, through clustering all its own, but also the external to AEGIS, open source accessibility developments in all major platforms in desktop, web and mobile section, along the 6 defined steps of OAF. Illustration: AEGIS OAEG blog aggregator The open source repository of OAEG is a software repository aiming to aggregate all open source accessibility software items developed fully, in part or outside the project. All visitors are able to add their own software to the database of OAEG simply by filling in the respective online form. What is worth noting here is that the SVN link leads to the official (external to AEGIS) page that each s/w maintains and not to a local page of AEGIS (unless the s/w has not been published any- where yet). In this way, OAEG achieves to provide always up-to-date AEGIS - FP7-224348: find more info at http://www.AEGIS-project.eu/
  • 5. ISSUE 7 PAGE 5 info on each s/w. All (so far developed) AEGIS open source solutions can be found therein, whereas in 2011, OATSoft s/w repository database (www.oatsoft.org) has been merged in the OAEG database, and, as such, s/w solutions of OATSoft can be also accessed through the OAEG repository. This effort was initiated in AEGIS, as a means of sustainability of OATSoft. In the open source repository, the visitor can select to view the available solutions either per title, per user group or per type (where different types correspond to OAF steps).

  • 6. PAGE 6 As aforementioned, OAEG, among other, has materialised the Open Accessibility Framework of the project. In the sense that it provides the clustering of the accessibility items of each type of the most widely used platforms in desktop, mobile and web including AEGIS contribu- tions. OAF section in OAEG can be accessed at http://www.oaeg.eu/ index.php?option=com_jumi&fileid=162&Itemid=36. The visitor can select the platform of his/her interest and have the overview of acces- sibility in its context as well as where AEGIS is placed in them, follow- ing the OAF steps established in the project. Links to released solu- tions can be found, whereas links to the semantics of AEGIS, when- ever applicable, are also enlisted for the AEGIS solutions. Illustration: AEGIS OAEG OAF section.

  • 7. ISSUE 7 PAGE 7 It should be highlighted that in the context of OAEG, there is the potential for the visitors to con- tribute, join and comment OAEG content (all sections of it) through the respective forms. While OAEG has been maintained until the end of the project, the intention is to link to the EASTIN portal (/www.eastin.eu) in order to allow its sustainability after the end of the project.

  • 8. PAGE 8 The AEGIS Success Stories AEGIS has been able to bring several outcomes on an international platform in the past few years, supported by the critical feedback from the end-users and input from the wider community. The following pro- vides an overview of what we consider to be the most successful pro- ject results in the desktop, web and mobile environments, based on their uptake by the community. Personas The AEGIS personas were released on the project website in January 2010. Accessible two-page pdf files are available for download for each of the 17 personas that were created within the project. Accord- ing to the open accessibility philosophy of the project, the personas are licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Li- censes so that third parties can freely update and adjust the personas desired, thus supporting further uptake. The web page from which the personas can be downloaded at the AE- GIS website has had 5,139 page views (d.d. August 8th 2012), which is the second highest ranking after the index page. In addition, the per- sonas page is equally the most frequent landing and exit page of the website. Moreover, several (informal) notifications of uptake of the per- sonas have reached the project consortium. Usage of the personas for educational purposes seems to be especially popular. DESKTOP Gnome Shell Magnifier GnomeShell Magnifier is a built-in magnifier for the GNOME Shell desktop on Linux. AEGIS' work has involved adding magnification to GNOME 3.4 as well as upcoming improvements in GNOME 3.6 ad- dressing screen enhancement such as: lightness inversion, RGB con- trast/brightness control and crosshairs for mouse tracking. This magnifier is now part of GNOME 3 and has been shipping for over a year now being used by low-vision users throughout Europe. The work carried out can be downloaded from www.gnome.org/getting -gnome/. Concrete numbers are not available, but downloads are in the many thousands.

  • 9. ISSUE 7 PAGE 9 odt2daisy The goal of odt2daisy is to integrate DAISY export functionality into a mainstream office suite, i.e. OpenOffice.org and (since January 2011) LibreOffice, while previous DAISY authoring tools were separate from office suites. (The Save-as-DAISY extension for Microsoft Office did not ex- ist at the time when the AEGIS project proposal was originally submitted.) odt2daisy 2.0 was released on SourceForge on 9 November 2009. By end of August 2012, od- t2daisy had been downloaded 9436 times (296 times per month on average). Furthermore, sev- eral DAISY production centres have taken up our results as indicated below: Both odt2daisy and odt2braille are used by Progrebraille Helen Keller (PHK). Luisterpunt (the Flemish Library for Audio Books and Braille), a customer of PHK, submitted a poster on odt2daisy and odt2braille to the AEGIS 2011 Conference. This poster explains how od- t2daisy and odt2braille enable production centres to use the OpenDocument Format as a single source for both DAISY and Braille, which leads to a more efficient process. Quoted from Luisterpunt’s poster for the AEGIS Conference 2011: The Flemish Library for Audio Books and Braille Books (Luisterpunt) for people with print disabilities wants to in- crease the size and quality of the collection through collaborative innovation with production centers, developers and readers convergence between Braille and DAISY production the use of formats that can be exchanged with other libraries. To achieve these goals the library and production centres “Blindenzorg Licht en Liefde” and “Progebraille Helen Keller” recently initiated a new production method with OpenOffice.org Writer and the opensource exten- sions odt2braille and odt2daisy. The new method enables more efficient production by using the same text file from Writer as a source for both Braille and DAISY the use of 'styles' in modern text formatting tools for creating accessible documents BrailleNet (Paris, France), Curtin University Centre for Accessible Technology (CUCAT, Perth, Australia), Alternative Media Access Centre (AMAC, University System of Georgia, USA), Association for the Blind in Western Australia (ABWA). Part of the odt2daisy code has been integrated in the DAISY Pipeline by the DAISY Consor- tium: http://data.daisy.org/projects/pipeline/doc/scripts/OdtToDtbook.html. odt2daisy has been integrated in Dedicon’s altText conversion portal (this was mentioned in Dedicon’s presentation at the 4th European eAccessibility Forum (Paris, 12 April 2010). odt2daisy and odt2braille have been integrated in Create&Convert, a package of open- source programs that can quickly translate electronic documents into an accessible alterna- tive format. Create&Convert is devised by the JISC Regional Support Centre Scotland North & East. It helps educational institutions comply with the Equality Act 2010 www.equalities.gov.uk/equality_act_2010.aspx, which came into force on 1 October of 2010 in the UK.

  • 10. PAGE 10 Odt2braille The goal of odt2braille is to integrate Braille export and embossing functionality into a mainstream office suite, i.e. OpenOffice.org and (since January 2011) LibreOffice, while previous Braille authoring tools were either separate from office suites or tied to a specific embosser. odt2braille was first released (officially) on SourceForge on 4 August 20. By end of August 2012, odt2braille (and the accompanying Braille fonts for the preview window) had been downloaded just over 8350 times (354 times per month on average). It is also worth mentioning that odt2braille was selected as SourceForge Project of the Month in March 2011. The creation of odt2Braille versions for Linux and 64-bit Mac OS X should further strengthen the take-up. WEB CMS Demonstrator The CMS demonstrator provides standard information within Word- Press such as archives, recent posts and comments in various formats (e.g.Fluidlist, MooToolsslider ,jQueryAccordion) and enhances wid- gets' accessibility through the application of the WAI-ARIA roles, states and properties. The CMS Demonstrator was firstly released on September 2010 at ae- gis.iti.gr/pilots/. One page is dedicated for every library: FluidInfusion, MooTools and jQuery. The CMS Demonstrator accessible plugins 1.0 (total 15) were firstly released on April 2011 at the official repository of WordPress at wordpress.org/extend/plugins/profile/theofanis1999. The CMS Demonstrator accessible plugins 2.0 (total 19) were released on October 2011 at the same site. By 31 August 2012, WordPress AEGIS widgets had been downloaded over 5000 times. Plugins for RIA This consists of a set of several plugins for NetBeans IDE and Jdvel- oper that are trying to support the developer during the development, simulation and assessment processes of accessible RIA applications. These plugins were released on December 2011 (NetBeans IDE) and August 2012 (for Jdeveloper IDE). Within 2012, WaaT plugin had been downloaded 80 times while DIAS plugin had been downloaded 36 times.

  • 11. ISSUE 7 PAGE 11 MOBILE Tecla Access Tecla Access is a set of open software (and hardware) tools that facilitate access to electronic devices for people with mobility impairments. Tecla Access app (now in 0.6 Beta) has been available from Android Market (now Google Play) since August 2010 (play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ca.idi.tekla). By August 2012, the Tecla Access app had been downloaded over 2000 times. Interested companies already took onboard the work by the project: The Tecla Access Shield (hardware) is being commercialized by a Canadian company called Komodo OpenLab (komodoopenlab.com/tecla/tecla-for-android/the-shield/). Komodo OpenLab maintains a YouTube channel with a series of videos on Tecla Access (www.youtube.com/user/KomodoOpenLab?ob=0&feature=results_main). A highlight: youtu.be/Ur6LDbAdOdg  Translations into 7 language are available so far: French, Spanish, German, Italian, Swedish, Mexican Spanish, and UK English. Translations into 18 additional languages are underway (crowdin.net/project/tecla-access), provided also by pilot partners. Accessible Contact Manager and Phone Dialer The phone dialer and contact manager makes the contact functionality in Android accessible to people with visual and cognitive disabilities. The key innovations of the application are: (1) hav- ing an ad-hoc accessibility service to improve Android's accessibility messages; (2) allowing users to interact with the application by simply drawing a gesture on the screen to perform an action; and (3) offering a tool that manages the users to actually record the voice and/or de- scription of the users on the agenda to allow an easier comprehension and recognition of each contact. Compared to the state of the art on Android, the Accessible Contact Manager and Phone Dialer enhances accessibility features of the contacts agenda and provides an accessi- ble approach that is not offered though previous versions of Android 4.0 platform “Ice Cream Sandwich”. The Accessible Contact Manager and Phone Dialer for Android was released on 24 May 2011 in the Android Market. The first version that was released was available for the Android 2.2 Platform. Currently, a Beta release of the product which supports Android 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich" and its new accessibility features, including the explore-by-touch method, is avail- able. This last version also covers and supports all Android platforms available since Android 2.2, making it fully compatible and scalable. The application was downloaded 2700+ times by the end of August 2012. People from the United States are the main users of the application with 25,2% of downloads, followed by Spanish users (14 %) and other European countries such as The United Kingdom or The Neth- erlands.

  • 12. PAGE 12 Our Demonstration Events and their Results In total, 16 demonstration events were organised by the AEGIS part- ners within the period March—August 2012. The events took place in Belgium, Spain, Sweden and UK. Eight of them were organised by the test sites themselves and the rest in conjunction with other local, na- tional or international events. The AEGIS booths at the various events were visited by over 5000 per- sons including a wide variety of stakeholders: people with different types of disabilities, experts, carers, developers, governmental actors, other stakeholders, etc. 19 of the solutions developed within the AEGIS project have been dem- onstrated during these events and the audience has been encouraged to try the solutions for a longer period (1 month or more) on their own at home and then provide online feedback back to the Consortium. In or- der to accommodate this, the “Downloads” section of the web site hosted all AEGIS open source solutions, providing key info as well as links to download from. Feedback forms for each solution were imple- mented for online completion and submission. Feedback forms were also distributed and filled-in at the face-to-face events. In total, 607 feedback forms have been submitted at the different pilot demonstration events in Belgium, England, Spain and Sweden. 103 feedback forms came from developers, 328 from stakeholders and 176 from end users. The overall impression of the applications was positive (see figures be- low). For all the applications together, more than 100 out of 176 sub- mitted feedback forms from end users stated that the user would like to adopt and use the application in their daily life. And more than 200 out of 328 feedback forms from stakeholders stated that the stakeholder would consider recommending the application to others. 75 feedback forms from developers showed that they would consider using the ap- plication at work. We have used scales divided into 5 degrees for the following ratings: Pleasant (5) – Unpleasant (1), Useful (5) – Useless (1) and Easy to use (5) – Difficult to use (1). When describing the ratings within this docu- ment we have chosen to write for example very pleasant – pleasant – average – quite unpleasant and unpleasant.

  • 14. PAGE 14 “Accessibility Reaching Everywhere” AEGIS Final Workshop and International Conference, Brussels, Belgium, 28-30 November 2011 The AEGIS project organised its final Workshop and 2nd International Conference entitled ―Accessibility Reaching Everywhere‖ on 28-30 No- vember 2011 in Brussels, bringing together both end-users (people with disabilities) as well as platform and application accessibility developers, representative organisations, the Assistive Technology industry, and policy makers. This 3-days event came ahead of the European Day of People with Disabilities that was marked by the European Commission via a policy conference (1-2 December 2011), in close cooperation with the European Disability Forum (EDF). The workshop on 28 November focused on the realisations of the AE- GIS (Open Accessibility Everywhere: Groundwork, Infrastructure, Stan- dards) project and provided attendees the opportunity to try out all out- comes of the project. The demonstrated products offer barrier-free ac- cess to desktop, mobile and web applications, are open source based and freely available. The conference on 29-30 November gathered a wide array of experts, end-users and their representative organisations, designers and devel- opers, as well as gatekeepers (service providers) and local, national and European policy makers from 28 countries to discuss scientific and policy developments in accessible technology; showcase relevant pro- jects and initiatives in the area of assistive technology.

  • 15. ISSUE 7 PAGE 15 The event was free of charge and took place at the Diamant Conference and Business Cen- tre, Boulevard A. Reyerslaan 80, 1030 Brussels. The event has been an outstanding platform for the AEGIS project to present not only the AE- GIS work, but also many relevant initiatives from across the world that relate to ICT AT (Assistive Technologies). In total 47 presentations (44 papers), spread over eight sessions, were presented to the participants. The AEGIS conference concluded with an Awarding Ceremony to distinguish outstanding par- ticipation in the following categories:  Best accessibility project in the spirit of AEGIS, awarded to Edwige Pissaloux for "Vision For Assis- tive Technologies".  Best AEGIS Conference paper in the spirit of AEGIS, awarded to Shadi Abou-Zahra for his paper ―Web Accessibility Guidance, Evaluation Methodologies, and Research Explorations‖.  Best AEGIS Conference poster in the spirit of AEGIS, awarded to Guillermo Peris Fajarnes for the "EYES2021" paper. The proceedings are available at www.epr.eu/aegis/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/ AEGIS_Conference_proceedings-final.pdf, bringing together all accepted, reviewed and pre- sented papers at the Conference in the different sessions over the two days. The proceedings start with the opening address by Helga Stevens, Senator and Flemish Member of Parliament, who provides an "embedded" view on the impact ICT AT can have on the life of people with disabilities. All papers presentations have been uploaded in PDF format to the conference website www.aegis-conference.eu so that the reader can combine this with the papers enclosed in the proceedings. The same page also provides the Workshop presentations. Finally, we would also like to highlight the videos that were recorded during and shortly after the events. These can be viewed via www.youtube.com/user/AccessForAlleu. The proceedings conclude with a snapshot of the many pictures that were taken at the three event days and a list of the attendees. A full "photographic" coverage is available on the public AEGIS Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Aegis.Accessible), which we highly recommend to "like" and join. We would like to thank the entire AEGIS project management team for their support in making this a successful 3-days event, and in particular also to the EPR team for the successful or- ganisation.

  • 16. PAGE 16 Watch our final video! The first project video was made available, both via the project website, as well as YouTube (http://youtu.be/u7II3aXKZgE), and has been propagated to other websites. The video focuses on explaining the aims and objectives of the project, identifying the impact for end-users through direct interviews with participants in the 1st International Con- ference, and showing the highlights of the 1st International Conference. Subtitles are available in Chinese, Czech, Dutch, English, French, Ger- man, Greek, Spanish and Swedish. The video was also shown during the breaks at the 2nd AEGIS conference, as well as was shown non- stop at the European day of People with Disabilities Policy Event (EDPWD) in Brussels on 2-3 December 2012 at the AEGIS booth. The project created 2 additional videos:  the final project video that enlists all the outcomes of the project, illustrated with scenery from piloting, testing and development sessions;  the Open Accessibility Framework (OAF) video that explains the different steps of the OAF, as recorded at the final AEGIS project conference which took place in Brussels on 29-30 November 2011. The final project video starts with an explanation of the OAF, and then covers the different developments that took place in the areas of the web, desktop and mobile. Throughout the entire video, every element is illustrated with supporting videos, either from the developer part, or from the end-user part, also using scenes with end-users. The video has also been integrated in the project website's opening page. AEGIS - FP7-224348: find more info at http://www.AEGIS-project.eu/
  • 17. ISSUE 7 PAGE 17 The final video has been launched through the AccessForAlleu YouTube channel to increase visibility (direct link: http://youtu.be/X8miIhqQ3MU). Additionally, also the OAF video was created. After a short introduction, the presentation Mr. Peter Korn gave at the AEGIS final project conference on 29 November 2011 in Brussels, Bel- gium is presented, mixed with slides that illustrate the 6 steps of the OAF. This separate video was created to better explain the approaches followed in the AEGIS de- velopments, as well as to guide future developers in their work. It has been integrated in the OAEG sections of the project website and the actual OAEG web- site. The OAF video has also been launched through the AccessForAlleu YouTube channel to in- crease visibility. (direct link: http://youtu.be/qmTM_wypgWA). These videos will also be shown during the forthcoming European Day of People with Disabili- ties policy event, which will take place in Brussels, Belgium in December 2012. Both videos have been subtitled in Czech, Dutch, English, German, French, Greek and Swed- ish. AEGIS - FP7-224348: find more info at http://www.AEGIS-project.eu/
  • 18. PAGE 18 Training platform 1.-Introduction One of the main objectives of AEGIS Training activities (WP5.2) was to improve the confidence and knowledge of AEGIS end users (pilot par- ticipants and assistants), consortium partners and developers, in using the tools developed in AEGIS. To do this, a methodology was estab- lished for the training activities and an accessible customised e-learning training platform (http://aegis.bluepoint- it.ro/browse.php) was devel- oped together with training materials, training courses, training work- shops and training evaluations forms. AEGIS training activities have taken place throughout the project lifetime and its outcomes will con- tinue to be available even after this. 2.-Training methodology, training platform AEGIS training activities have followed a blended training methodology, consisting of a combination of online training, with face to face training, and with the support of printed training materials. In order to address the training needs of AEGIS, the activity A5.2.1 Training framework and tools provided an accessible e-learning environment to support these training needs. The platform used is intuitive and allows enough flexibil- ity to embed various additional supporting training material, ranging from streamed videos, images, documents to emulators and document repositories. A common training course structure was defined. To also allow offline training, all course content can be exported as a SCORM compliant zip file, which provides offline an easy and accessible inter- face. The platform is online and can be accessed at aegis.bluepoint- it.ro/ 3.-Training activities for developers Within the training activities for developers, specific material was devel- oped to present the necessary content for training regarding AEGIS framework and tools. The training material includes technical on-line tu- torials with step by step instructions. The training courses for developers are available online at aegis.bluepoint-it.ro/. The developers’ curriculum covers the following topics: Open accessible desktop, Specification and Requirements of web application accessibil- ity, Requirements and specifications towards an accessible framework for mobile devices, AEGIS Ontology’s interface, How to create accessi- ble mobile applications, How to develop web accessible applications. AEGIS Open Accessibility Framework – OAF.

The online training courses have been complemented by workshops and training events. Illustration: AEGIS Online Training Platform 4.-Training activities for pilots and end users The activities A5.2.3 Training activities for end users and A5.2.4 Training activities for pilots have been organised following the blended methodology. The courses for pilots and end- users were developed in each phase of the pilots and actualised in accordance with the new prototypes and functionalities that were added in an iterative process during the project, be- fore each of the pilots phase started. The training courses for the pilots were structured into four different groups of courses, one for each country where the pilots were running: Belgium, United Kingdom, Sweden and Spain.

  • 20. The courses on each country were organised according the different Pilot phase and the nature of the prototypes.  the first part focuses on the hardware and software requirements  the second part focuses on detailed explanation  the final part in all prototype courses (whenever this is available) consists of a detailed video, showing the respective prototype Illustration 2: Online course with supporting video Training sessions and workshops have been organised by the pilot sites, bringing together all end -users (people with disabilities, care-takers, experts, tutors). These were supported with the pro- vided prototypes, as well as the learning material uploaded to the platform, and the supporting videos. The support provided through the training environment was highly valued by the beneficiaries and developers, both in terms of knowledge acquired but also in order to make better use of AEGIS tools and outcomes. The training contributed substantially to the smooth operation of the pilots with developers and beneficiaries. AEGIS training activities have shown that the e-learning plat- form usage and subsequent content provision constitutes an effective and efficient method to de- liver the training, while at the same time sharing information and content.
