Are Advanced Placement Computer Science Principles curricula accessible to students with disabilities?

Many different curricula are used to teach Advanced Placement (AP) Computer Science Principles (CSP). Most of these curricula are not fully accessible to students with disabilities, largely because the programming tools that they utilize are not accessible to students who are blind or visually impaired and typically use screen readers to access content presented on the screen. Screen readers can read text aloud to users but cannot interpret content presented in images.

AccessWeb

The AccessWeb site, which focused on accessible web design, has merged with AccessIT. 

The National Center on Accessible Information Technology in Education (AccessIT) provides resources to help educational entities purchase, develop, and use information technology that is welcoming to, accessible to, and usable by everyone, including people with disabilities. AccessIT was funded for five years by the U.S. Department of Education (grant #H133D010306).
