Description:
The Accessible Multimedia Interfaces (AMI) program offers summer research opportunities focused on accessible multimedia interfaces. The goal is to improve accessibility and usability of streamed media (e.g., television programs or online lectures) for people with sensory disabilities (deaf, hard of hearing, low vision and blind).

Ten students will be selected to participate in the AMI program at the Rochester Institute of Technology. The students will work in pairs and collaborate with peers and mentors who are deaf, hard of hearing, low vision or blind. The teams will work together to analyze the accessibility of online media platforms. The teams will work together to develop and evaluate solutions. The students will be immersed in an unique social and research environment where they can learn sign language and use accessible technology.
