Everybody is either creating or joining Podcasts!

Schools and universities have begun using them to distribute educational
content, but, in the rush to join the latest trend, have not

always thought about the impact on their students with disabilities.

EASI (Equal Access to Software and Information) provides 3 separate Podcast
feeds on the general topic of how to create and

provide accessible Information technology:
1. IT Tips and Tricks
2. It's About People Not Technology
3. Conference Presentations from Conferences on IT and People with Disabilities
