Connect2Compete: The Biggest Digital Inclusion Project in the U.S.

  • Is there any component of this effort that is focused on better access for people with disabilities? Or on assistive technologies?

  • Jayne,

    Great question. I didn't find that C2C national has anything in particular going in the area of assistive technology. However the big California Emerging Technology Fund (CETF) project mentioned above, which is part of this new digital inclusion eco-system has a good deal of emphasis in this area. Find out more on this at: www.cetfund.org/.../accessibility. Also www.cetfund.org/.../accessibility. Their grantees include Alliance for Technology Access and Center for Accessible Technology among others. Susan Walters from CETF is a driving force for including assistive technology in to digital inclusion. She's one of my heroes.
