Abstract

This paper presents a unified semantic framework that can used by vendors/service providers that would like to semantically describe their assistive technologies according to the categorization proposed by the ISO 9999 standard as well as the EASTIN taxonomy. The framework is based on an approach towards a unified semantic description of assistive technologies by combining information coming from different sources. The wealth of information of the EASTIN network, the biggest and most comprehensive information service on assistive technology serving older and disabled people, is currently exploited by the proposed framework in a unified way. The proposed framework offers an easy mechanism for including a new assistive technology in the whole Cloud4all/GPII infrastructure.
