Department of Defense Computer/Electronic Accommodations Program Partners With National Science Foundation

The National Science Foundation has an interagency agreement with the Department of Defense Computer/Electronic Accommodations Program (CAP) making its employees with disabilities, including telecommuters, eligible for CAP services.

CAP pays for and provides a wide variety of assistive technology for people with hearing, visual, dexterity, cognitive or communication disabilities, e.g. teletypewriters (TTY's), captioning for training videos, print enlargers, screen readers, alternative keyboards, pointing devices, and speech recognition software. CAP also funds sign language interpreters, readers, and personal assistants for Federal employees needing to attend technology related training sessions.

CAP maintains the CAP Technology Evaluation Center (CAPTEC) where employees and their supervisors can evaluate and become familiar with assistive technology and facilitate the process of choosing the appropriate equipment. CAPTEC, located in the Pentagon, Room 2A259, contains several computer workstations equipped with a wide variety of technology designed to accommodate persons with disabilities. The CAP office is available to answer any disability or accommodation related questions. CAP's website is http://www.tricare.mil/cap

For further information about processing this request, please contact Shawn Murray and/or Pamela Smith at 703-292-8020.
