A weekly look at assistive technology--tools designed to assist people with vision, mobility, or hearing impairments. Produced by the INDATA Project at Easter Seals Crossroads in Indiana.
Hi folks. Welcome to “Accessibility Minute”, your weekly look at Assisitive Technology—those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs.
Everyone has the need to travel. In some areas of the country people rely on public transportation systems-- in other areas, people drive or use other means. For people with disabilities, access to transportation is critical.
Project Action, sponsored by Easter Seals, is dedicated to increasing the accessibility of transportation. The project provides a variety of educational services, technical assistance, awareness activities, research and even a hotline to help people with disabilities work to create long-term changes in the transportation systems in their community. Visit projectaction.org to learn more.
