M-Enabling Forum Europe is a unique venue that brings together policy makers, standardization bodies, industry, banks and organizations representing various segments of persons with disabilities including multi-disability advocacy organizations like the European Disability Forum. In the foyer near the conference hall sponsors and exhibitors will demonstrate solutions, innovations and seek collaborations for future product developments. The foyer will serve also as networking area for the expected 250 conference attendees and visitors of REHACARE.
M-Enabling Forum Europe 2018 will include panel discussions about rules and standards as well as case studies, showing how mobile technologies and assistive services enable independent living. Today digital accessibility technologies provide alternative models of communications such as text to speech, voice recognition, artificial intelligence applied to image recognition,-or interfaces with assistive devices allowing persons with disabilities and seniors to enjoy full access to e-books, webcontent, web services,- or control their smart home environments including handling of all kinds of electronic devices and home appliances.
Since the European Accessibility Act is expected to be ready later this year, speakers of the European Commission are expected to present its main feature and implementation roadmap at the Forum. For more than 80 million persons with disabilities in Europe and an aging population this act will be trigger an era of greater inclusion in society and access to the job market. The European Accessibility Act (EAA) will present challenges for industry but at the same time open an enormous market potential for all manufacturers and providers of accessible digital products and solutions.
