This report summarises the main findings of the one-year Accessible Information for Lifelong Learning (i-access) project, which ran from 2011 to 2012. The project was co-financed by a European Community Grant under the Lifelong Learning Transversal Programme, Key Activity 1: Policy Co-operation and Innovation.
The project aimed to raise awareness of the issues surrounding accessible information provision for lifelong learning in order to facilitate positive developments. The collective results of the i-access project led to guiding principles and key areas for recommendations to support accessible information provision for lifelong learning, agreed at the European level by key stakeholders in the field. These recommendations are targeted at policy-makers for lifelong learning and ICT, working at the European, national or lifelong learning organisational levels.
The report presents these guiding principles and key areas for recommendations, as well as an overview of the information sources collected and analysed throughout the project activities. These include:
- a review of European and international policy and recommendations on accessibility;
- a country survey on accessibility policy and implementation;
- project conference inputs and conclusions.
