Welcome to the Center for Accessible Technology (CforAT)
CforAT's focus is on access to computers and technology for people with disabilities.
We do this so children with disabilities can succeed in school, adults with disabilities can find (and keep) jobs and all people with disabilities can use the internet, email and benefit from the digital revolution.
CforAT also provides business consulting services to corporations, libraries and government entities. We provide assistance on creating accessible websites and have a test bank of users with disabilities to test products and services.
CforAT supports use of technology to promote independent living for people with disabilities, providing information via an online resource, and engaging in advocacy work to support policies that expand access to technology for people with disabilities, including the many people with disabilities who are low-income.
CforAT is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
