CCB’s Supplementary Report on Accessible Technology

The CCB’s Supplementary Report on Accessible Technology, dated November 12, 2019, is being widely acclaimed as important statement for people with seeing disabilities and is being forwarded to CCB members for review and comment.The government has stated that “the CCB has brilliantly set the table of future possibilities for the ATP by providing potential avenues for growth and improvements, based on perceived lacunae to the existing program.  This report not only addresses the essential role played by the ATP, but also points to the responsibility of assuming (and continue playing) a leadership role in the development of assistive and adaptive technologies that are affordable to the end user. I am happy to have put my trust in you and the CCB.  You have delivered with brio.”
