About At-talk

Welcome to the assistive technology mailing list!

This list is for staff of the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped who provide patrons, either in person or by phone, with assistive technology reference and training services. While accessible technologies exist to help patrons of all abilities with reading, communication and research, it is an ongoing challenge to connect patrons with relevant, timely and usable information about accessible software and hardware in a technology ecosystem that is increasingly complex. This list provides an opportunity for members to share our knowledge about accessibility features of mainstream technologies; features of and uses for assistive software and hardware; reference materials and learning resources in the assistive technology field; and approaches and techniques for library-based assistive technology education and support.

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the At-talk Archives.
