Disability studies scholars present accessibility guidelines - 0 views

  •

Accessible Technology (or Lack Thereof) at EDUCAUSE - 1 views

  •  
    This is a question we need to start asking up-front. When a textbook vendor calls, ask about accessible materials. When you see a documentary, ask if it's closed-captioned. When we think about new technologies, ask about screen readers and other accessibility tools. Better still, ask vendors (and colleagues) what accommodations they'd make to get all students an equivalent educational experience.
