About Knowbility

1033 La Posada Drive, Suite 307, Austin, TX 78752, US

Mission Statement

We work to raise awareness and skills that foster digital equity and inclusion for people with disabilities.

Description

Knowbility provides advocacy, education, and training in pursuit of the mission of equal access to digital technology. Knowbility is a leader in ensuring equal access to the communications tools that are required for all people to access education, employment, and social opportunities. Assistive technologies and workforce needs have created unprecedented potential for people with disabilities to live independently. This potential can only be realized, however, as the technology is made fully accessible to people who use assistive technology or adaptive strategies when they access the web. Knowbility's programs are innovative, entrepreneurial efforts to raise awareness and leverage community resources to deliver training, education, and employment opportunity to youth and adults with disabilities.
