What's coming in Ability

How are some of the world’s biggest IT companies responding to the needs of disabled people? We ask leading tech companies what they are doing to make their products and services accessible to disabled people. We talk to them about the programmes they have funded to help disabled people access IT and look at examples of how their customers have gone about making sure disabled employees can use the technology they need to do their jobs.

Comments about Ability

I appreciate how proactive the UK is in assistive technology and often refer to the models I see in your magazine when thinking of our inclusion programs in the US. We are a litigation-based society over here and I try my best to help alleviate that, just a little bit, in my school district.  Many thanks! Tina Schwartz, AT Practitioner.

An informative publication. It looks good on screen as an e-Book too. Peter Bryenton, New College Worcester

You certainly put a lot of information into this magazine, which is useful to read. Helen Morrissey, Diversity Advisor, HM Customs and Excise
