Welcome to the GPII WIKI (Where all the work gets done)

The purpose of the Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure (GPII) is to ensure that everyone who faces accessibility barriers due to disability, literacy, digital literacy, or aging, regardless of economic resources, can access and use Internet technology to access information, communities, things and services for education, employment, daily living, civic participation, health, and safety.

This is the working space for the GPII working groups

Orientation

Activity

If you want to follow what we are doing or join us - then dive in below.

Community Forums

Decisions

To help keep track of decisions we have created a special pages for logging decisions that have effect across GPII.

  • The GLOSSARY page is where terminology decisions will be logged
  • The DECISIONS LOG page contains a reverse chronological listing decisions along with links back to the working pages where they are described more fully.    

Running the GPII

The GPII core infrastructure currently runs on Linux (Fedora), Windows and Android. Our 'builds' are most suitable for demonstrations or allow developers to explore the GPII and contribute to our work.

Join us

We welcome suggestions, issue reports (bugs) or contributions of any form, including designs, documentation and code. In addition to joining our community through the forums listed above we have a Contributor's Emporium to help you "get on board", whether you are a volunteer or paid by someone to work on GPII related activity.

GPII Overview

The work of GPII is divided into the following major areas

  • Each has its own working groups, mail list, and work areas
    • Links to the home pages for each working group are provided below
    • All of the information about the group, its meetings, lists, and links to all work areas for the group can be found from there
    • The numbered WP references are to WorkPackages in the CLOUD4All Project that is currently exploring and building many of the core components of the GPII (as can be seen below), links to other funded projects such as Prosperity4All are mostly categorized for internal reference
  • Others are welcome to join in and collaborate on these efforts, however.
  1. Architecture 
    • How this work is organized; meeting times; contributors; etc.  (WP105)
    • Overview of the CLOUD4All/GPII architecture flow and components

    • Imp Tiger Team The Implementation Tiger Team works on helping make as many assistive technologies and mainstream products as possible GPII-Compatible
  5. Unified Listing and MarketPlace 
    • Unified Listing - work on creating the Federated Listing of all Open and Closed source, Commercial and Free, Add-on and built-in access features.  (WP203)
    • GPII Marketplace - work to create a Marketplace for "purchasing" commercial and free Access solutions 
    • Shopping Aid - development of "Pre-sale" matching aid to help users find thing in Unified Listing (and marketplace) based on NP Profiles (See also REAL-TIME Matchmaking)
