We pursue our mission through three priorities:
Accessible technology matters for the one billion people with disabilities around the world. Improved accessibility means access to healthcare providers and appointments, information technology, digital classrooms and learning, social inclusion and networking, shopping, entertainment, and travel arrangements, voter registration and civic engagement, banking and financial inclusion, & career training and employment.
