Abstract

Since The Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure [1] aims to become an international standard, one of the biggest challenge of the GPII project is to support the many Operating Systems that are running in our Personal Computers. Nowadays, we make an extensive use of personal computers—both laptops and desktops—and their Operating Systems in a lot of circumstances, and as a result of this, we can say that a lot of people could have difficulties when they start using a new computer. Add to this the diversity of different software applications that people use and their many different restrictions of use, and the problem becomes bigger when a person needs some Assistive Technology [2] to use a computer efficiently .As part of the Cloud4all project, the implementation of the GPII on PC OSs is taking place to address these problems. By having a first version of this implementation, the GPII is ready to help the users to solve their problems when using a new PC’s OS for the first time.
