The ABLEDATA site is an extremely comprehensive database of information related
to assistive technology. By searching the various elements of the site, my
credential students have become more aware of what's available for students with
disabilities. Reading about assistive technology in a textbook gives them
content knowledge, but seeing the product and hearing how it has impacted the
lives of real people is invaluable for their education.

Technical Remarks:

There are two versions of the site available. The Full Graphics site is
recommended for users with a 28.8K or faster modem and who have no difficulties
with Javascript. The Low Graphics site is available for anyone whose equipment
does not meet these specifications.
