Creating change for deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals by developing accessible solutions to use anywhere.


The NTID Center on Access Technology will investigate, evaluate and report on the most effective and efficient use of access technologies and train individuals in their use in order to accelerate the widespread implementation of best practices within deaf education at the post secondary level.

This Center will create a collaborative network of individuals from RIT and other universities, as well as from industry and professional organizations, to promote research and development of access technologies that will positively impact post secondary educational experiences for deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals.

A brief overview of who we are and what we seek to do here at CAT.
