A checklist for making computing departments welcoming and accessible to all students
This video presentation shows how to make computer labs accessible to people with disabilities. It is designed to train computer lab managers in precollege and college environments to design labs that are accessible to everyone.
Students and workers with learning disabilities demonstrate computer-based tools and strategies that promote their academic and career success.
People with mobility impairments demonstrate technology that provides access to all functions of computer hardware and software.
People with visual and hearing impairments demonstrate computer technology for school and work.
High school and college students with a wide variety of disabilities share their experiences using computers and demonstrate the technology they use.
As increasing numbers of people with disabilities engage in educational opportunities that require computer use, the accessibility of computing facilities becomes even more critical. Put simply, computer labs need to be accessible to all users. Students with disabilities need equal access to: (1) building/facilities, (2) lab staff, (3) physical space and printed materials, (4) computers and software, and (5) electronic resources.
