ODEP Issues Report on Accessible Information and Communication Technology

You can see the report from the Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy at this link.  The first paragraph:
As technology continues to transform the workplace, demand is growing for the development, purchase, maintenance and use of information and communication technology (ICT)1 that is accessible to and usable by all applicants and employees, including individuals with disabilities. Leading companies recognize that fostering an accessible workplace is the smart thing to do, both from a business standpoint and a legal perspective. This paper provides a framework that can be used to develop technical assistance tools to help employers (including government contractors) design, purchase, lease, maintain and use ICT that is accessible to and usable by people with disabilities and others.

Thanks to Mary Brougher for the pointer.
