Judge, Simon (2006) The OATS Project. In: International Society for Augmentative and Alternative Communication Biennial Conference, August 2006, Dusseldorf, Germany.
Open Source software offers great potential within the Assistive Technology and AAC fields - it offers a new model of software development that encourages truly user-centred design and innovation. Open Source software is where the ‘source code’ that makes up software is freely published.
The presentation will include: • The work of the OATS project in developing the first website dedicated to Open Source Assistive Technology (OATS). • Demonstration of the OATS website - which allows users to easily find relevant software and acts as a dating service between users, professionals and software engineers. • Examples of OATS
