This paper presents the outcomes from the interviews with experts and stakeholders that took part under the study on e-Accessibility2020[1] (“Study on Implications from Future ICT Trends on Assistive Technology and Accessibility”, SMART 2010/0077). This study aims to provide the European Commission with recommendations on future research policy, especially regarding Framework Programme 8 (ICT & FET) and the next Competitiveness & Innovation Programme (CIP). To achieve that, the study follows a data gathering process from various sources, such as scientific papers, past and running projects deliverables and interviews with experts. The objective of this data gathering process is to identify key trends, micro-trends and weak signals on new technologies that will possibly affect the future of eAccessibility. In this paper we present the findings from a series of interviews with experts and stakeholders which took part during the data gathering process.
