      Supercapacitors are storage devices that can charge and discharge at a higher speed and with a longer lifetime than conventional batteries, using electrostatics rather than chemical reactions to store energy.

    • WAI-dev

      The WAI-DEV project develops strategies to support the production of inclusive ICT components and services . It builds upon the recent technical and policy advancements in accessibility and on the crosscutting benefits of accessibility for everyone regardless of age, gender, software, hardware, connectivity, language, literacy, digital skills, social and economic situations, and physical and mental abilities. It demonstrates the potential economic value of accessible solutions and presents a showcase of good practices in inclusive design.

    • WAI-tools

      The WAI-Tools project brings together key partners from industry, government, and research, to develop authoritative resources on accessibility conformance testing (ACT). The work is carried out within the W3C and through its open process, to ensure rigorous vetting and broad consensus. It includes the development of ACT Rules that transparently document consistent testing procedures for the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), which is the internationally recognized standard for web accessibility.

    • WADcher

      WADcher develops a platform and a set of tools for accessibility evaluation, monitoring and reporting . It also implements standardised application programming interfaces that can be used by existing development environments and content management systems to build accessible websites and applications. The Decision Support Environment designed by WADcher aggregates the findings of automatic evaluations and supports, where necessary, additional manual testing. The project also develops observatory tools for monitoring accessibility in the long term including precise reporting functionalities.

    • WAI-guide

      WAI-Guide builds on and extends the efforts of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) on web accessibility education and training , accessibility support for web content authoring tools and emerging web technologies. Specifically, WAI-Guide aims to develop open curricula on web accessibility to support scalable accessibility training and to leverage the quality of existing programs. It will also result in industry-specific guidance on authoring tools accessibility and will address gaps in accessibility support in technologies, such as immersive environments and the Web of Things (WoT).
