5.0 Accommodation Barriers/Considerations (II)

  • Interoperability issues

  • Legislation/ rulemaking mandating the accessibility of telecommunications services for persons with disabilities fails to address newer technologies: e-mail, wireless telecom, etc.

  • Research in collaborative and virtual workspaces not necessarily conducted with special considerations for people with disabilities (telecommuting vs. telework)

  • Needs of aging workers with disabilities vs. workers aging into disability?

  • Older workers with disabilities lack awareness that they may be eligible for workplace accommodations
