The Access Technology Higher Education Network (ATHEN), in its continuing effort to assist higher education institutions ascertain the accessibility of the Google Apps suite, conducted accessibility evaluations on GMail and Google Calendar. The evaluations cover assistive technologies used for visual, mobility, learning, and cognitive disabilities.

Disability is part of the natural diversity of human life. It touches all of us, whether through our own individual experience or that of a family member, neighbor, friend or colleague. As such, we all have a role in—and benefit to gain from—advancing equality for people with disabilities in all sectors of society, including the workplace. 

Assistant Secretary Kathy Martinez, Office of Disability Employment Policy
