In this weeks call the members of the W3C LBD CG were happy to have Holger Dieterich and Sebastian Felix Zappe from W3C LDA CG as guests presenting an amazing effort towards using digital technologies to easen the daily life of people with reduced mobility by distributing accessibility information on the web.
The two pointed to their work on developing a11yjson, a JSON based datamodel to describe accessibility information on the web. They plan to formalise this format using Linked Data and Semantic Web Technologies and a potential collaboration with W3C LBD CG should focus on the linking to Building Topology Ontology (BOT).
