JACCES Volume 4 Number 3 2014

This volume 4, number 3 is composed by seven articles where 34 researchers explain their findings. They are from universities, foundations, government centers and companies in 3 different countries. All researches presented here have in common the aim of creating a more accessible world. Thanks to all of them this number of JACCES sees the light of day.

Firstly, this issue includes an article of Society and Economics section. This study is related to accessibility legislation in Spain, and it investigates whether the existence of accessibility legislation per se, is enough to ensure its practical application.

Secondly, there is a set of studies based on a selection of works from the 4th Edition of the International Congress of Design, Research Networks and Technology for All (DRT4ALL). This congress took place at Madrid in 2013 promoted by the ONCE Foundation. Its goal is to show latest advances in Domotics, Robotics and Remote-assistance, and how these areas can work together to make everybody's life easier and improve social integration for people with disabilities. Thus, these papers are included in the Engineering section, and they are related to concepts such as interfaces for programming robots, audio description in Spanish DTT, human-computer interaction for cognitive rehabilitation and accessible payment systems.

Finally, in Health and Medical Care section are gathered articles regarding gaming for cognitive stimulation and virtual reality for rehabilitation of patients with spinal cord injuries.
