Accessibility at CMU
We design, make and study technology to make the world accessible.
We are researchers, teachers, and people with disabilities at CMU making the world more accessible.
Our work is made possible by our sponsors:
Sponsors help to set our research directions, and also receive exclusive access to team members and early results. If you are interested in sponsoring accessibility work at CMU, please contact one of the faculty members or project leads listed above. If you're unsure who would be most appropriate, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org who will help to direct your mail to a the right place.
Every Thursday at noon, we meet to talk about each other's work, listen to local accessibility advocates, or hear from guest speakers. To get announcments of upcoming lunches, please subscribe to the mailing list.
