Information You Need to Know about Disabilities

Do you have any questions about the disabled or what kinds of equipment they use to accomplish their jobs? This page should help! Many of the products discussed here are in use by NOAA employees who are disabled, but the majority of the equipment is not. When known, we have provided a link to the manufacturer's home page. Links to other home pages with information on legislation and regulations that apply to the disabled will be found here soon. There is also a section on how to write accessible web pages.

This page is NOT a page about Section 508 legislation. For information about Section 508 goto:

the NOAA Section 508 home page

A list of links by type of disability and then manufacturer names.

Inclusion in any of the lists below does not imply that a given product is endorsed by NOAA or any of its employees.

Food for thought:
The main challenge people with a disability face is not the difficulty in coping with the disability, but rather the attitude of others concerning their disability.
