This program focuses on three priorities. The first is to promote the development, demonstration and use of technology to improve results for students with disabilities. The second priority is to provide educational value to students with disabilities in the form of educational media services activities and the third to support improvements to captioning and video descriptions that are appropriate for classroom use.
