We completed year five of a second five-year RERC for Advancing Cognitive Technologies (RERC-ACT) through the University of Colorado. This project houses the RESNA Standards Committee on Cognitive Accessibility (CA), whose goal is to develop universal design standards to increase product usability of consumer products. This work was presented at the 2011 RESNA conference. A new version of the ANSI/RESNA Standard for Cognitive Accessibility – Volume 1: Universal Criteria for Reporting the Cognitive Accessibility of Products and Technologies is now published and available on the RESNA CA website. RESNA CA is collaborating on international standards with ISO/TC 173/WG 10 Assistive products for cognitive disabilities. Portions of RESNA CA-1 are being incorporated into a new ISO draft standard. RESNA CA meetings are open to all.
