to ensure that this new technology remains barrier-free for people with
disabilities.

organizations, access research centers, and government is working together
to address Web accessibility. She will focus on improvements in Web
technologies to facilitate accessibility; guidelines for Web content
developers and Web-based applications manufacturers; and initiatives to
raise awareness and provide training on accessibility solutions.
