Abstract

The new model of labor relations established by the Spanish Royal Decree-Law (3/2012) on urgent measures for labor reform has among its objectives the promotion of inclusion in the labor market of more advantaged groups, including the people with disabilities. This paper presents a cloud-based platform aimed at obtaining an on-line workspace to provide facilities to inform, train and evaluate the competencies of disabled people, and more specifically those skills required to facilitate the labor integration of individuals with auditory disabilities. This platform presented in this paper has been tested in a real environment and the results obtained are promising.
