F123 Project – Zero Project Innovative Practice 2013 – included in 2013 UNESCO Global Report

Project F123

The F123 Software has been included as a promising technology in the 2013 UNESCO Global Report: „Opening New Avenues for Empowerment: ICTs to Access Information and Knowledge for Persons with Disabilities“.

Project F123 provides all the software a person with a disability needs to use, a computer, including operating system, applications, and assistive technologies (such as screen readers or virtual keyboards) in USB drives or installed directly on computers.  In the case of the USB version of F123, a small change in the boot sequence of the BIOS of a computer allows the person with a disability to use almost any computer without the need to install anything on its hard disk.

Therefore, Project F123 enables access to educational and employment opportunities through free and open source assistive technologies.
