  Increasing Internet access

Photo of article The Internet has become so ubiquitous it has pervaded our daily life to such an extent that we tend to forget it is there and take it for granted. What is also taken for granted is the ease with which we access sites. But less well known are the people behind the sites who make sure those sites are accessible to everyone, including the otherwise able, the elderly. Generally ensuring a certain standard for sites is also important. In a fine example of cooperation between corporations and research institutions across Europe, researchers have combined their efforts to test web compliance. The study is an outcome of the I2WEB ('Inclusive future-internet web services') project, which is funded with almost EUR 1.9 million under the 'Information and communication technologies' (ICT) Theme of the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).
