ATIC Hosts Annual Open House

Kathy Cahill, Associate Dean, Assistive Technology Information Center

The ATIC staff (Assistive Technology Information Center) held our annual IAP Open House on February 2, welcoming about 35-40 attendees, both from within MIT and beyond. We demonstrated various assistive technologies, such as screen reading, magnification, voice recognition, and scan-and-read software. Our accessibility and usability experts talked with visitors about tools they can use to check websites for accessibility and usability evaluation tools.

We also welcomed a new staff member, Brianna Giacoppe, to ATIC in January! Brianna will be doing assistive technology and accessibility consulting for staff and students. Brianna came to us from Tufts University, where she also worked in assistive technology.
