main innovations
The program realizes accessibility solution as a cloud service. This means that basically no physical infrastructure needs to be built in the locations where the service is used.

It provides unlimited scalability, since the service is provided on a device already used by the end user. The central infrastructure is designed to be highly scalable and easy to maintain. Scalability is unlimited both in terms of end user number and geographical coverage.

Involvement of collective intelligence. Content is developed by the active participation of stakeholders. This also ensures that the content is relevant to stakeholders.
