New publication! How to Create Disability Access to Technology: Best Practices in Electronic and Information Technology Companies
This manual explains how today's technology companies are largely ignoring a huge, untapped global market of millions of people with disabilities. In the US alone, there over 54 million people with disabilities­a market that is expected to nearly double in the next 15 years. Five easy-to-read "How To" chapters cover how technology industry experts created accessibility in their companies, how AOL's strategic commitment to accessibility averted a costly Americans with Disabilities Act verdict, and how to use the included extensive resources to understand the disability market and how it will be changing.
Technology and Disability: a global glimpse of the future
WID commissioned several specialists to prepare overviews of key technology topics with a view towards the future. Some of the reports have already appeared in DisabilityWorld, while others are printed here for the first time. The topics selected for an international perspective are: universal design, advocacy and the information society, accessible information technology in the European Union, wheelchair provision trends in developing countries and information technology developments benefiting blind and print disabled users.
How to Create Disability Access to Technology: Best Practices in Electronic and Information Technology Companies
The book reveals how technology manufacturers gain not only corporate social responsibility goals, but also bottom-line profits by producing accessible products for people with disabilities. This is the first guide to show exactly how the design of common technology products - such as cell phones and computers - benefits from including people with disabilities in design, testing and marketing. It also explains how companies can avoid costly mistakes.

"Technology Access for All" Program and Curriculum for Organizations and Individuals (Multimedia)

The training provides an overview of laws, regulations, and policies guaranteeing access to electronic and information technology for people with disabilities.
"How to Find and Buy Accessible Technology" Program and Curriculum for Organizations and Individuals

One section addresses how to work with electronic companies to improve the accessibility of their products.
Integrating Universal Design Principles in Asset Building Programs
We are only beginning to understand the applicability of Universal Design approaches in diverse arenas. Universal Design began largely as physical accommodation practices that revolutionized the way people thought about access issues. This paper proposes ways of expanding Universal Design concepts to Asset Building programs, using concrete examples for implementation. Opening Universal Design principles up to challenging ways of thinking, presenting information, as well as physical accommodation is a major step toward a more inclusive world.
Accessible Housing Database and Manual
The goal of the Accessible Housing Database package is to provide a tool with which Independent Living Centers can track accessible rental housing in their community, and from which officials and advocates can draw data in order to assess affordability and availability of accessible housing.
