Welcome to the lawsuits of ICCHP 2010! We have been proud to welcome members from greater than forty nations from around the world to this year’s ICCHP. because the overdue Eighties, it's been ICCHP’s venture to help and mirror improvement within the box of “Assistive Technologies,” eAccessibility and eInclusion. With a spotlight on medical caliber, ICCHP has develop into an incredible reference in our box. The 2010 convention and this selection of papers once more fulfilled this challenge. The foreign Programme Committee, comprising 106 specialists from world wide, chosen 147 complete and forty four brief papers out of 328 abstracts submitted to ICCHP.

Beginning 2010, more than 4800 DTBook files were available on the server. To ensure the access to copyrighted files, a secured delivery mechanism based on S/MIME and digital certificates has been set up. A collaborative wiki platform that can be used by authorized proofreaders and accessibility specialists has been established. Content edition and structuring are performed using the Extended Wikitext language. The work on PDF or scanned books is facilitated by features of the ProofreadPage extension: for each page of a book, the original image is displayed beside the OCR recognized text, so, a user has the ability to refer permanently to the original source.

To each page of the Wiki, a discussion page is linked : this feature is useful for to talk about conflicts or different points of view among contributors. A Wiki appears to be a good framework for adapting documents and making them accessible in the DTBook format : the Wikitext language can express information regarding the structure of a document, and features like revision control system and discussion pages are well suited for a collaborative approach. Nevertheless, existing Wikis did not provide all the technical features required to support all accessibility possibilities offered by the DTBook format.

Additionally, other modes of interaction are possible, such as the pen based audio tactile interface developed by Joshua Miele and Steven Landau [24][25]. 3 Solutions Solutions for the issues raised in Section 3 are embedded into this approach. By storing audio tactile components in independent repositories and exposing them 18 D. McMullen and D. Fitzpatrick via web services, the content becomes searchable, retrievable and reusable by tactile producers all over the world. In addition, the ability to search visual object and content object repositories for keywords, can be built into the production process of future audio tactile production environments.
