The "Study on Monitoring eAccessibility" general objective is to monitor the status and progress made in eAccessibility in a series of selected countries (EU Member States and third countries), identifying the best practices in the fields of legislation, policies and practices; ensuring a direct and active interaction between the relevant actors involved in the implementation and assessment of actual eAccessibility; defining, developing and applying a comparative analysis framework within which to monitor progress made in eAccessibility over time and among countries
The SMART 2008-0066 study aims to contribute to the development and implementation of the European Union's policy of eAccessibility by providing useful information as to the approaches, practices and the impact of measures to promote eAccessibility, taking into consideration the interests of end-users and other relevant aspects such as competitivity and market forces.
The project is led by Technosite, a technology and consultancy company belonging to the business corporation of ONCE Foundation, which in turn belongs to ONCE, the National Organisation of the Spanish Blind.
