Accessible & Assistive Technologies


Accessible technology is a technology designed with the needs of the largest amount of users in mind, in other words universal design. It is technology with built-in customization features so that users can really individualize their experience to meet their needs. Assistive technology is specifically designed to help a person with a disability to perform a task. Assistive technology alone will never guarantee access for people with disabilities. Accessing information in any form is only possible when that information is born accessible, meaning it was designed with accessibility in mind.
