AbleData: Important Notice!!

Due to a realignment of National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) priorities, AbleData was discontinued on September 27th, 2020. However, AbleData, which was started by Marian Hall in the 1980s as cards in a card file box used to answer questions over the phone before it graduated to a computer database, a database on CDs (before the internet) and finally the Internet  - will always be remembered as a pioneering effort in bringing practical information on assistive technologies to everyone.  Thank you to Marian and all who work on AbleData over the years. 

Other sites that provide information similar to AbleData for different types of assistive technology are:
