The incidence of disabilities is increasing as our population ages and we find that access to ICT is becoming mandatory for meaningful participation, independence, and self-sustenance. However we are not only nowhere near providing access to everyone who needs it, but we are actually losing ground due to reasons such as technical proliferation across platforms, increasing product churn (breaking existing solutions), decreasing social resources to address it, and an inability to effectively serve the tails of these populations because of the higher cost to do so. This poster describes the Cloud4all and Prosperity4All projects and progress in building the Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure (GPII), an infrastructure based on cloud, web and platform technologies that can increase dissemination and international localization while lowering the cost to develop, deploy, market, and support a broad range of access solutions.
