Abstract: The undeniable progress in Web Accessibility can be contrasted with the scant impact on its application to the real Web world. This problem is especially serious when the Web is the only way to obtain specific services. In some countries, fundamental procedures such as interaction with Administration, health services, or banks, can exclusively be accessed through the Web. This issue became even more evident during the COVID-19 pandemic, when a significant sector of the population that does not have access to the Internet experienced important barriers to manage their situation. In addition to the technical problems, the digital and gender divide, which have a decisive effect on accessibility and condition the exercise of civil rights, are often disregarded by Web Accessibility studies. In this talk we will present our work on the accessibility of Administration’s websites and, in addition, we will discuss the need of considering non-technological accessibility barriers to find ways to alleviate them.

On March 29, Dr. Sandra M. Espín Tello gave a lecture on the use of assistive technology in older adults and people with disabilities for master’s students in Occupational Therapy at Chang Gung University (Taiwan). During the session, the most recognized theoretical models on which both the design and recommendations/prescriptions of assistive technology are based (or should be based) were reviewed, the acceptance and abandonment of assistive technology based on the lifespan perspective were analyzed, different types of classification were explained and, finally, a review of the research studies that are being carried out in EGOKITUZ on the use and design of assistive technology was carried out. The students were highly interested during the lecture, and there was a rich discussion at the end of the session, especially regarding the differences and similarities in the assistive technology provision between Taiwan and Spain.
