Information Technology Accessibility Committee (ITAC)

No Boundaries Logo

The Information Technology Accessibility Committee (ITAC) has a long history as an advisory group to the Chief Information Officer that dates back to the late 1990's. The committee was initially formed in recognition of the importance of fully supporting the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

During the over 20 years that ITAC has existed, we have had the great fortune of having a wide array of dedicated, passionate members, who have offered a broad spectrum of expertise. Membership has traditionally fallen into three distinct categories of individuals who have a strong commitment to, and a vested interest in digital accessibility:

  1. Individuals with Disabilities (Cognitive, Hearing, Mobility, Visual) who use assistive technologies;
  2. State and Community (e.g. Maine Information Technology (MaineIT), University System, Community, Vocational Rehabilitation, Education); and
  3. Technology (e.g. Assistive Technology, Application Development, Webmaster/Designer, Telecommunications, Hardware).

The committee meets monthly and discusses a wide range of digital accessibility topics. The following links provide additional information about the ITAC:
