  • Proceedings of the COST 219 conference : Telecommunications and people with disabilities - current practice and future plans in Europe : Prague, 16 to 18 September 1991


This publication presents the proceedings of a conference held in Prague on 16-18 September 1991, which was an introductory meeting between experts in the field of telecommunications and disability from the whole of Europe. Presentations were made by COST 219 members and experts from Eastern and Central Europe on a broad range of topics. The goal of the conference was to define new cooperative research projects based on these presentations and the recommendations from the working groups. These projects can either be performed as COST 219 projects or be referred to other cooperative programmes in Europe. A further goal was to discuss other possible future actions in order to: (i) ensure that telecommunications and teleinformatics services can also be used by disabled and elderly people; (ii) ensure that new teleinformatic services are optimally used to improve the quality of life of disabled and elderly people as well as support independent living.
