Title: Carl and Ruth Shapiro Family National Center for Accessible Media
Url: http://ncam.wgbh.org/
Publisher: WGBH Educational Foundation
Description: Started in 1993, The Carl and Ruth Shapiro Family National Center for Accessible Media (NCAM) is part of WGBH's Media Access Group. They are primarily interested in creating appropriate policy and technology programs to make sure that various media and technologies are accessible to people with disabilities. On their site, visitors might wish to start by reading over their "What's New?" area, which features some updates on their latest projects, such as their work on simplified captions and access to in-flight entertainment. Moving on, the "Projects" area contains information on their ongoing and completed projects, which include work on increasing access to emergency alerts and research on edited captions for profoundly deaf children. This area also includes a number of useful publications, such as the 2006 document, "Accessible Digital Media: Design Guidelines for Electronic Publications, Multimedia and the Web".
