Making the workplace accessible to people with disabilities can seem onerous, but the federal government is taking care of its own through the Computer/Electronics Accommodations Program (CAP). Never heard of it? Not surprising. It’s a little-known service that the Pentagon contracts with to make the workplace more comfortable for those with disabilities.
CAP has been around since 1990, and was created to help those injured in active duty, but covers anyone working for the federal government who needs assistive technology. Some of the disabilities they help with include vision and hearing, head and neck, and dexterity and mobility issues.
Full information on CAP can be found on their site here. It’s pretty interesting to learn about the different places that work on a regular basis to make the world a more accessible place for everyone.
