The RERC will move the concept of a Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure (GPII) to field implementations where we can test the efficacy and viability of the concept with real-world conditions and users. This will include implementation in libraries, with a focus on providing libraries with cost-effective ways of serving users with disabilities. The RERC will also develop and test a decision support tool based on the GPII Unified Listing. This tool will provide users and clinicians with a new capability for tracking and selecting ever-changing solutions, including both assistive technologies and information on access features built into mainstream technologies. The RERC will continue work to motivate and facilitate access built directly into mainstream products through its technology transfer program and research support of industry standards groups and governmental agencies working on accessibility standards.
