The History of A-Prompt

A-Prompt was created through the joint efforts of the University of Toronto's Adaptive Technology Resource Centre (ATRC) and the TRACE Center at the University of Wisconsin. Both research groups are dedicated to developing accessible technologies and improving the availability of information on the Internet for people with disabilities. Partial funding for the A-Prompt project was provided by the Government of Ontario's Telecommunications Access Partnership (TAP) program and the U.S. National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR).

The ATRC, in collaboration with Comité d'adaptation de la main-d'oeuvre pour personnes handicapées (CAMO), introduced a French-language version of A-Prompt on Jan. 31, 2002. The CAMO, a Francophone labour organization, became involved in the project to assist Quebec-based employers, unions, organizations for people with disabilities and government ministries improve Internet accessibility in both the educational and work environments. The original press release is available en français at the Projet de A-Prompt.

A German version of A-Prompt is also available. This localization of A-Prompt was sponsored by the Forschungsinstitut Technologie-Behindertenhilfe (FTB) der Evangelischen Stiftung Volmarstein of Germany in collaboration with the ATRC. The localization was carried out in the framework of the German Alliance for barrier free Information Technology (AbI), under a grant of the German Social Ministry BMGS.
