AMAC. The Accessibility Movers and Changers

At AMAC we're a mission-driven team constantly looking for new ways to knock down barriers to accessibility. Programs like Tools for Life, AccessText, CAMI and PROFITT that began as inspired initiatives are now established, trusted programs serving the accessibility needs of many thousands of individuals across the United States.

Tools for Life

Georgia's Assistive Technology Act Program

Tools for Life, Georgia's Assistive Technology Act Program, operates under AMAC. Tools for Life offers more options for greater freedom by increasing access to and acquisition of assistive technology (AT) devices and services for Georgians of all ages and disabilities so they can live, learn, work, and play independently in communities of their choice.

AccessText Network

Improving College Textbook Accessibility

The AccessText Network is a membership exchange network that facilitates and supports the nationwide delivery of alternative files for students with diagnosed print-related disabilities. AccessText serves as a national nucleus for post-secondary distribution of approved alternative textbook file exchanges, training, and technical support.

CAMI

Promoting student success through accessible and innovative instructional materials

The Center for Accessible Materials Innovation (CAMI) is funded by a First In The World grant from the U.S. Department of Education. CAMI takes a multi-disciplinary approach, including consumer information about accessibility, research into under-utilization of accessible materials by Minority Serving Institutions, provision of accessible materials, education and training, and more.

Making Georgia's Information and Communication Technology Accessible

AccessGA is a joint initiative of the Georgia State ADA Coordinator's Office, the Georgia Institute of Technology's AMAC Accessibility Solutions and Research Center, and The Georgia Technology Authority. AccessGA's purpose is to support Georgia state agencies with Information and Communication Technology (ICT) accessibility, promoting equal and timely access for employees and customers with a wide range of disabilities.

Web Accessibility Group (WAG)

The Web Accessibility Group (WAG) began at UGA in 2011 and transitioned to Georgia Tech's AMAC Accessibility Center in 2015. Its purpose is to bring together individuals throughout the University System of Georgia (USG) attempting to navigate the complex Section 508 standards. The WAG currently offers web accessibility information and assistance through a wiki, listserv, and monthly online meetings where expert presenters are invited to share best practices and solutions. The WAG works closely with AMAC's AccessGA project.
