AMAC Accessibility Solutions and Research Center is working with the state of Georgia to make the state’s websites accessible. John Rempel, a quality control and training specialist at AMAC, audited the websites for the state.

He was recently featured in an article on Atlanta’s wabe.org talking about what it means to make a website accessible to those with disabilities. One way is through the use of alternative tags on photos. For those persons with visual impairment using screen readers, the device reads the alternative tag, or description of photos, to the user.

AMAC is the perfect research center to assist the state. The research and service center at Georgia Tech’s College of Design, provides practical solutions for challenges faced by individuals with disabilities. The center offers services to help organizations bring their websites into compliance with accessibility laws.

The center also provides accessibility services to individuals, educational organizations, nonprofits as well as government and corporate entities. Learn more about the AMAC research center at amacresearch.gatech.edu. Many of AMAC’s research-driven services are provided through amacusg.org.
