Accessibility Technology. Accessibility is a continuum. This includes electronic documents websites software hardware video audio and other technologies.
The more accessible you want a document to be for all users the more time and tools you will need for testing the more knowledge you will need to understand and fix the problems and the more expert help and training you will need to achieve complete remediation. Accessible technology has been designed in a way that can be accessed by all users. People Detection uses technology that measures how long it takes light to reflect back from objects helping you do things like stand in line at a safe distance better navigate a noisy area or find an empty seat with ease.
Accessible Technology Services has funding to caption or audio describe a limited number of videos through a service supported by UW-IT.
For example Samsung and AFB Consulting have worked on feature enhancements to the Galaxy S10 Galaxy S20 Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Z Fold series of smartphones as well as the Q7 series of smart televisions. Accessibility is strongly related to universal design which is the process of creating products that are usable by people with the widest possible range of abilities operating within the widest possible range of situations. Many users are blind have motor disabilities tremors little or no use of their hands or dont have hands must still rely on a keyboard for web navigation and to access content. Individuals departments and other units at the UW are encouraged to submit their highly visible high-impact multiple use andor strategic videos for consideration.
