RE: [voting-project] FAQ Process
"What are the components of the demonstration system?"

The demo will have a web-based component and several standalone components.

The web-based component will allow anyone with Internet access to get an
idea of what the system is like (including being able to print the ballot).
It will basically consist of this page Jan set up, but we'll give it a nice

There are 4 main components for the standalone part:

1) Voting machine with GUI (2 machines: one with touchscreen, one with a
mouse) and printer
2) Voting machine with Vision Impaired Interface and printer (voter makes
selections pressing keys while wearing headphones)
3) Barcode Vocalization Application -- this is a PC set up with a barcode
scanner to read the selections and play spoken list of selections that were
made on the printed ballot.
4) Tabulation demo -- a PC running software that will take dummy datasets
and show how votes (XML files) are accumulated and tallied.
