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, 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.Visit the Tools for Life website

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.Visit the WAG wiki
