The diverse teams provide students with the experience and knowledge to recognize the range and complexity of accessibility challenges in accessing information technologies and to evaluate the efficacy of proposed solutions in a unique research environment. Each research project addresses unsolved accessibility challenges for deaf, hard of hearing, or deaf-blind consumers in using existing information technologies that undergraduate researchers can easily understand, analyze, and solve.
