Inclusive Technologies provides a full range of consulting services to companies, public sector organizations, consumer advocates, researchers, purchasers, and policy makers on how products can better meet the needs of all users, including users with disabilities and elders.
Accessible and usable products are a puzzle with four pieces:
- Industry wants to understand how to make their products more accessible in an efficient manner. For this they need market and technical information, an understanding of user needs, and guidance for complying with regulations.
- Public agency purchasers want to understand how to evaluate products for accessibility before they buy, and how to implement them in the most accessible manner, and to do all of that efficiently.
- Consumers and advocates want to understand how new technologies and products will affect them. They want to move forward into new technologies like everyone else, and they want to find the products and services that are accessible to them.
- Public policy makers want to put their work in the right context: what policy tools will have the most efficient and effective impact, and serve the needs of all stakeholders.
