What is Information & Communication Technology (ICT)?
- Anything that creates, stores, or transfers digital information.
- Information technology and other equipment, systems, technologies, or processes, for which the principal function is the creation, manipulation, storage, display, receipt, or transmission of electronic data and information, as well as any associated content.
- Examples include websites, web applications, copiers/printers, instructional equipment and applications, video and multimedia products, software, operating systems, kiosk, desktop and portable computers, research applications, etc.
Why is an ATI Review of ICT Important?
An ATI Review eliminates access barriers that benefits all people, not only persons with a disability. In addition, the cost to provide accommodations for students, faculty, staff, or the general public often can be reduced or even eliminated by considering accessibility considerations at the time of purchase.
Do I need an ATI Review?
All Information & Communication Technology (ICT) are reviewed for compliance for accessibility and security standards.
