What is Preferences for Global Access?

The goal of the Preferences for Global Access project (PGA) is the design and development of web software to assist users with disabilities in creating online user profiles that specify their needs and preferences for how online information and services should be presented to them.

The project is a U S Department of Education, National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research contract for "Profile Creation Support for Cloud-Based Accessibility." It is a collaboration between the Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education (ISKME), the Inclusive Design Research Centre (IDRC), IBM's Accessibility Software Division, Raising the Floor International, Inclusive Technologies, and WGBH National Center for Accessible Media

This project builds upon the work of Preferences for Global Access Year 1 (2013) and Preferences for Global Access Year 2 (2014-2015).
