Main objectives: The aim of the portal was to provide a core resource of information and advice on accessible technology for Arabic speaking people with a disability. The approach addressed the need to deliver this information in a range of media and through creative commons licence to maximise disseminations and impact.

Relevance to ENTELIS: The project seeks to ensure that a knowledge base around AT is available for Arabic users, this increases the uptake of technologies regardless of geographic location

New knowledge/experience provided: Whilst the information is not especially new, the development of both English and Arabic resources for the Arabic community is a significant development.
