AODA Enforcement Inspired By Game Of Thrones
By Victor Schwartzman
AODA became law! Anyone but a misanthrope would be bowled over by this rush of activity. At this rate, by the time AODA legally should have completed its work in 2025, maybe 20,000 out of 36,000 Ontario companies would have filed AODA reports!

Participants Wanted for Study: Disability and Mobile Technology
The study examines how people with disabilities use mobile computing devices (such as smartphone and tablets) and the benefits and barriers that they may encounter using the device. The study aims to shed light on how mobile technology can be used to facilitate access, inclusion and equality.
National Federation of the Blind and H&R Block Announce Agreement Assuring Accessibility
Blind people access computers, Web sites, and mobile applications through screen access software that converts what is on the screen into spoken words or Braille, but improperly coded Web sites and applications can prevent this software from working properly, denying the blind user equal access.
Landmark Settlement Agreement Substantially Improves Accessibility to Golden Gate National Recreational Area
Disability Rights Advocates (DRA) and the National Park Service (NPS) have entered into a landmark settlement agreement that will significantly improve access to Golden Gate National Recreational Area (GGNRA) for the thousands of people with mobility and vision disabilities who visit GGNRA each year.
The Case Against Assistive Technology
In the real world, using technology is seen as being tech-savvy. And yet in our schools, technology is often seen as giving an unfair advantage.
eSSENTIAL Accessibility: helping organizations reach, serve and empower people with disabilities.
The eSSENTIAL Accessibility assistive technology app gives those who have trouble typing, moving a mouse, or reading a screen due to a variety of conditions such as stroke, paralysis or arthritis – the tools they need to navigate the Web. The app is free to the end-user and simple to use.
