Work ACCESS and Assistive Software Knowledgebase

When faced with a workplace accommodation problem, would you like to be able to learn how others have solved it? Are you frustrated when you see a “solution” that an employer or employee made on their own that is not working well because it was chosen without adequate information?

Georgia Tech is developing two free online tools designed to help employees with disabilities and their employers find accommodation tools to perform their jobs successfully.

Work ACCESS is an easy-to-use workplace accommodation assessment system that collects information across multiple factors, like tasks and workplace environment, to determine potential solutions.

The Assistive Software Knowledgebase is a new resource developed to help people make informed choices about selecting, acquiring, and using specialized computer software in the workplace.
