Engineering Ingegneria Informatica SpA (ENG) came to the GPII DeveloperSpace to integrate accessible features into their business intelligence suite. Their business was not accessible for people that needed special interface adaptation.
Thanks to Prosperity4All…
ENG integrated Robobraille, a service developed by Sensus and other building blocks that allows people with visual impairments to use the business intelligence suite.
‘Our involvement in the DeveloperSpace has given us the necessary knowledge to keep accessibility always in focus for future developments’
Marco Aimar, ENG Engineer.
ENG aims to propose the first available accessible business solution integrating the following GPII DeveloperSpace functionalities:
- Preference server for auto-personalisation for users with visual impairments
- ARIA’s support to better the text-to-speech support for people with disabilities
- Geo-referenced business intelligence data accessibility to visually impaired users through preferences and tabular text-to-speech support
- Business Intelligence charts data accessibility to visually impaired users through preferences and tabular text-to-speech support
‘Our effort in integrating AT into our Business Suite has been hinted by our participation in the GPII DeveloperSpace, having the possibility to discuss with AT experts and count on high quality components, allowed Engineering to minimise the impact on it development schedule and, at the same time, make sure that its product was integrated with best on place components’.
The implementation has given an innovative end product, a more accessible business suite allowing people with visual impairments to use the suite. Secondly, the DeveloperSpace resources has allowed ENG to integrate these features in a cost and time effective way. These two aspects reinforce the project’s goal to create the conditions to allow a new ecosystem to grow.
