California State University (Long Beach) made the news as an early adopter of WebAdapt2Me. InTouch Newsletter, Vol. 14, No. 1: “California State University, Long Beach is the first university anywhere to adopt WebAdapt2Me, an assistive technology from IBM that removes barriers to reading for people with print disabilities. This software exploits the flexibility of web information to produce reading environments that exactly fit the reading needs of each individual. Students, staff and faculty who are not blind, but who still have difficulties reading at the levels demanded by university life, can now read documents on the web effectively.”
