The Accessible Planet (TAP)


The Accessible Planet is dedicated to improving the quality of life of people with disabilities by discovering, promoting, creating, and delivering accessibility solutions for products and services related to education, employment, entertainment, family, health, and independent living. TAP is a global leader in the full inclusion of people with disabilities in the use, enjoyment, and production of modern media.


The Accessible Planet is collaborating with the VDRDC and other DLN partners on approaches to making the tools and techniques of professional video description accessible to blind and visually-impaired professionals. TAP also provides advisory and material support for several of the description research projects being conducted at the VDRDC, and for the youth mentoring event planned in collaboration with the NFB in 2013.
