Initiative Objective: The initiative's objective is to build synergies between OW2 members and the larger community around open and compliant digital solutions for people with physical or cognitive difficulties. The initiative seeks to facilitate technology integration between open source accessibility enablement and management software. It will provide a neutral forum to identify, discuss, develop and integrate quality open source solutions for accessibility.
Initiative Name: The official name is "OW2 Open Source Accessibility initiative" (OSAi).
The roadmap of the OW2 Open Source Accessibility initiative will be jointly developed by its participants. However, the initiative is being launched with an initial focus on the following domains: supporting online and face-to-face communication, content creation and access, and exploring the work environment for accessibility at the office or while traveling.
The next OSAi workgroup will take place at Orange HQ, Paris on December, 7, 2016 Please find more information on the OSAi private wiki (registration required).
