    Sponsor Accessible Technology

    Many people with disabilities cannot use a typical keyboard or mouse while using a computer. Instead, they use voice recognition software, a specialized mouse and/or keyboard to provide computer input. Some people use screen readers to hear what they cannot see. You can make a computer accessible.
