Tech/Engineering - Names (personal, company) / Disability aids
Dutch term or phrase: Gewa
In a text relating to the various aids that can be supplied to disabled persons. The phrase is "Gewa (omgevingsbesturing)" - its an Excel spreadsheet - and talks about (remotely) controlling lights, TV, curtains etc. Obvious ways around the problem but does anybody know what Gewa stands for?
