Database Basic - Sample Version

1. Outline

This is a sample of the software used in the "Data Processing - Basic Course" contest at the 7th International Abilympics which was held in November 2007. The contest consists of two tasks, the "Data Entry" and the "Data Correction". The former is the task to input the content of Reader's Card into the form shown on the screen. The latter is the task to correct information shown on the screen in accordance with the content of the Customer's Card. The operating time is 60 minutes for each task. When 60 minutes have passed, the screen for the task will close, and the processed data and information about mistakes will be saved automatically.
This software made use of the kernel part of the software "Let's Try Data Entry!" developed for persons with intellectual disabilities by the National Institute of Vocational Rehabilitation in 2006, with translating data of tasks and description of screen into English.
