Similar to SNAPI, the European project APSIS4all (Accessible Personalised Service in Public Digital Terminals for all) use the EN 1332-4 standard to personalise digital terminals . The project is aiming to personalize public digital terminals (PDTs) through the implementation of EN1332-4. It is planned to extend this standard to include XML coding. Adaption of interfaces based on the specification EN 1332-4 successfully tested in libraries to reconfigure PC interfaces.
APSIS4all follows to approaches: direct interaction and indirect interaction. Direct interaction means, the complete personalisation process is carried at the PDT. Indirect interaction means, the user defines a desired operation by using his preferred device. The interaction with the PDT on site only comprises the execution of defined tasks. The main challenge is to overcome the homogeneous activation protocols of accessibility features in PDTs. For example, a screen reader may be activated by pressing a button on a screen, pressing the number 2 key on the keypad four times or connecting a headset to the machine. APSIS4all is using a activation protocol that is common for all users.
