Advances in the electronic and information technology (E & IT) industries have revolutionized the way we work, play and communicate. Current and emerging technologies have created opportunities for some but barriers for others in our society. To address the barriers faced by people with disabilities, landmark legislation - Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act - was passed stating that Federal departments and agencies would work through their procurement and development processes to ensure equal access to E&IT-based information and services for their employees and members of the public with disabilities.
The Information Technology Technical Assistance and Training Center (ITTATC) is charged with providing accessibility training and technical assistance related to Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and Section 255 of the Telecommunications Act. We want to help our audiences - industry, state officials, trainers, and consumers - to understand the requirements of Sections 508 and 255 and to achieve success in their efforts to develop, market, and buy accessible E&IT.
ITTATC, which is funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR), is located at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia.
This section of our site is designed to help familiarize you with the project, its mission, history, and the involvement of others outside of Georgia Institute of Technology.
