Evaluating the Users’ Satisfaction Using Inclusive Initiatives in Two Different Environments: The University and a Research Conference
This paper presents evaluation results of the user’s satisfaction using the APEINTA project which main aim is to provide accessibility in education, in and out of the classroom. APEINTA is the Spanish acronym for “Aiming for an Inclusive Education based on Assistive Technology”. The APEINTA project is focused in two main inclusive proposals: first, it deals with eliminating hard of hearing students’ communication barriers in the classroom, providing them automatic real-time captioning and other mechanisms for making easy the communication with the teacher and others students; and second, it deals also in providing an accessible Web learning platform with accessible digital resources, so every student can access them in and out of the classroom.
