Accessible Technology and Inclusive Apprenticeship Scott Michael Robertson 42 Define of Accessible Technology Accessible technology is technology that can be used successfully by people with a wide range of functional abilities. When technology is accessible, each user is able to interact with it in ways that work best for him or her. Accessible technology is either directly accessible, meaning

it is usable without any additional devices, or it is accessible through and compatible with assistive technology (AT). 43 Online Applications Present Barriers for Job Seekers with Disabilities Snapshot of barriers to applying to jobs online 44 PEATs Tools Enhance Accessible Workplace Technology
