Information and communications technologies (ICT) is a broad term that refers to all products and technologies that are used to create, access, manipulate, store, retrieve, transmit, or receive information and communications in a digital format. It is critical that ICT be accessible to all individuals.
IATP provides training on the importance, development, application, and integration of accessibility for information and communication technologies. Examples include:
- Federal and state laws related to accessible ICT requirements and compliance
- Organization infrastructure to address accessibility
- How to develop accessible documents (i.e. Word, PDF, Power Point, Google Docs)
- How to remediate inaccessible documents
- Development of accessible multimedia and websites
- Procurement policies
- Accessible communications
- Other technology and communication components related to ICT infrastructure

External Resources Disclaimer:
IATP is providing a limited list of relevant links to resources for Accessible ICT and Accessible Educational Materials. As best as we try to make sure all of our suggested resources are accessible, we are not able to test all resources and sometimes when they are updated it creates new accessibility issues that we were not aware of during our posting. Please keep this in mind when navigating off of the IATP website to other resources. If you encounter a problem with a resource, we encourage you to directly contact the website developer and/or author(s) of the document.
Testing Tool Caution:
Please remember that all automatic testing tools only test about 40% of common accessibility issues. Testing tools are a significant first step in checking for accessibility issues. Keep in mind a passing report from an accessibility testing tool and/or a checklist does not mean that your website and/or document is 100% accessible.
