Accessible technology from Commerce
The Commerce Department's Assistive Technology Exhibit and Policy Forum last month showcased ways to make information systems more accessible to handicapped users. The exhibit featured a variety of technologies, such as software to recognize head and eye movements of users to operate a computer.
A panel discussion on accessible technology included, from left, Gary Talbot of General Motors Corp.; Amy Brisben of AnthroTronix Inc. of Silver Spring, Md.; Commerce's Ben Wu; Susan Mazuri of Cingular Wireless and Yvan Lagace of VisuAide of Longueuil, Quebec.
