The ICT Policy Support Programme funded Thematic Network eAccess+ will create a platform for collecting and providing guidance on how to use in practice the body of knowledge on eAccessibility. eAccess+ is a best-practice network too that will facilitate co-operation between the community of practitioners (found in research institutions and consultancies) and all the other stakeholders (policy makers, administrators in the public sector, technical staff in the private sector…).
The purpose is to accelerate the take-up of e-accessibility specifications and technical solutions, and to contribute to a common approach at European level. The network will support the development of common guidelines and standards, and, where needed, will provide rationale for harmonised political and legal measures.
Its main focus is web accessibility but it will address also digital TV and self-service terminals.
