NIDRR Awards Funding for Cloud Computing Research

November 2013 — The U.S. Department of Education National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) has awarded $3.7 million to Carnegie Mellon University to conduct a Disability Rehabilitation Research Project (DRRP) on Inclusive Cloud and Web Computing.  The project is a collaboration between Carnegie Mellon, Syracuse University and The University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). Project team director, Aaron Steinfeld, noted, “There has been great progress over the years on Web accessibility standards and systems, but there is still a lot of work left to do.” The five-year project will focus on enhancing web accessibility including the accessibility of web interfaces, the “presentation of information on the web,” and “ways to dynamically change pointing and clicking actions on web pages.” More information on the project can be found at http://inclusiveweb.org/.
