Accessibility: The NFB, Google, Microsoft, and You

The National Federation of the Blind (NFB) and the U.S. Department of Education (ED) have expressed concern about campus use of technologies that are inaccessible to people with disabilities. Over the past several weeks, EDUCAUSE has been facilitating discussions between campuses and two of the key technology vendors (Google and Microsoft) as well as with the NFB. If you have questions about your own plans for accessible technology, please contact EDUCAUSE at We can put you in touch with the right people to answer them.

And you can learn more about the NFB and ED’s accessibility concerns from recent EDUCAUSE Policy Analysis and Advocacy blog posts:
