Thematic Workshops

In addition to the main exhibition, TifloInnova will be running three practical thematic workshop sessions that will provide specific groups of ONCE affiliated members with the opportunity to explore topics of interest related to access to information, based on conventional technologies or specific solutions that help users to interact with the contents or to introduce such solutions to their daily lives.

These sessions will be held in the Library at the same venue of TifloInnova 2017 (ONCE Sports & Culture Centre (CDC) in Paseo de la Habana Nº 208, Madrid) on Saturday, 18th November, and Sunday 19th of November.

Participation is free of charge.  However, and due to limited capacity for each session, please pre-register on line to attend, call our Customer Service Centre in CIDAT (910 109 111, option 2), or send an email to .

SESSION 1:   “From TV test charts to accessible TV:  A window to the world to our elders”

(Saturday 18th of November, at 11:00 h.  Estimated duration:  90 minutes)

This session is mainly addressed to the elderly.  It intends to provide participants with practical experiences on the different accessible solutions and options that can help users to interact with the contents and options available in conventional TV.

VOD (Video on demand) technology is growing fast as it allows users to view films, programmes and TV shows whenever they want, and that’s why there is a real need to find the most accessible options to viewers.

Coordinator: Ms. Yolanda Tejada Serrano.
