Schools, libraries, clinics

The GPII can make it easier for those working with people having difficulty with digital interfaces to be able to find solutions and to be able to use them in their schools, libraries and other public places.

It can help clinicians to evaluate individuals to find out what would be necessary, in order for them, to be able to use digital interfaces or use them more easily. It can also help them, to find solutions that have those features anywhere in the world. They can also “ask” the GPII’s Unified Listing to automatically let them know when new products come out that have particular features or capabilities by using the Unified Listing’s Shopping and Alerting Aid.

The particular features or technologies that the individual needs can then be stored in their needs and preference set in the cloud. They can be given a KeyToken in the form of a USB, or ring or card which can automatically access these preference stored in the cloud. They would then be able to go up to any computer or digital device at the library, in computer labs, a shared computer at home, or any other GPII compatible digital device and use their KeyToken to cause that device to automatically change into the form that would meet their needs.

This can make it much easier for libraries, for example, to meet the needs of a wide variety of patrons without the library staff having to know how to turn on the various features, configure them, etc. Library staff wouldn’t need to worry about whether or not there are enough special computers available for the number of people having special needs. The Users would be able to go up to any computer in the library and be able to use it.

Teachers wouldn’t have to worry about continually reconfiguring the computers for the different children who come in at different times of the day. Any child would come up to any computer and it would automatically adapt to them. The teachers could spend their time teaching rather than constantly configuring computers for children.
