Open call for accessibility experts

ACCESSIBLE is an EU FP7 project spanning over 36 months, start date 1st September 2008, with the aim of improving the accessibility of software development products, by introducing an harmonised accessibility methodology into accessible software development processes, using significantly better measurement strategies, methodologies, etc.

The envisaged improvement will enable large organisations, SMEs or individuals (developers, designers, etc.) to produce software products of superior accessibility and usability, accompanied with appropriate measures, technologies and tools that improve their overall quality.

The ACCESSIBLE project is implementing specific methodologies and tools for ensuring accessibility for designers and software developers.

An open call for experts has been launched for supporting the evaluation of the envisaged project results (evaluation of Assessment tools, developer designer aid module, and the Harmonized methodology). The target is to receive feedback on the results of the project under the expert view of people who have experience in this domain and can evaluate, approve and enrich the ACCESSIBLE outcomes.

Candidates will preferably be public bodies, representatives of software development organisations and SMEs, industrial organisations, accessibility consultants, developers, designers, testers, and other interest organisations and researchers. Also the participation of people with disabilities should be welcomed.

Interested experts are kindly requested to fill in the online application form.
