If you are looking for accessible information on COVID-19, or anything else for that matter, you can find help from Georgia Tech’s Center for Inclusive Design and Innovation (CIDI) website.  Subjects include symptoms, testing, use of masks, and how to protect your service animal, and the materials are adapted versions of the CDC’s COVID-19 guidance.  Materials are available in large print or screen-reader accessible versions and include Word documents, PDF, and hardcopy braille.

In addition to providing COVID information, CIDI provides on demand braille documents, E-text versions of any book or document, and audio description of media.  It’s Tools for Life program offers access to and acquisition of assistive technology for Georgians of all ages and disabilities so they can live, learn work, and play independently in the communities of their choice.

CIDI was created by a merger of the Center for Assistive Technology and Environmental Access and AMAC Accessibility.  It advocates for usability, inclusivity, and accessibility for all. The center collaborates with colleagues, friends, designers, and innovators to expand the awareness around the importance of incorporating accessibility into design. CIDI is committed to promoting technological innovation; developing user-centered research, products, and services for individuals with disabilities; and addressing unmet needs in higher education, government, non-profits, and corporations by providing accessible and inclusive environments for all.
