The AAR has prepared some guidelines on making presentations accessible and understandable for persons with disabilities. Please see the Guidelines for Accessible Presentations.
General Computer Operation
The vast majority of computers run some version of Microsoft Windows or Apple Mac operating systems. Microsoft operates a site at http://www.microsoft.com/enable/ with information on techniques and products available to facilitate computer operation by persons with disabilities; Apple's version is here http://www.apple.com/accessibility/.
If you find you are unable to execute a function on the website because of a disability, please contact the AAR at 1-404-727-3049 or firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can assist you.
Efforts have been made to ensure that this website is accessible to the visually impaired. Specifically:
The U.S. government has issued guidelines for federal agencies regarding the structure of electronic information so that it can be utilized by persons with disabilities: section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998. While the AAR is not a federal agency, and thus is not bound by this legislation, we do believe our website is in compliance with section 508, and intend to maintain its accessibility. We will pursue this goal using section 508, feedback from members and site visitors, and other benchmarks to guide us.
If you have difficulty using this website as a result of any disability, please contact us at email@example.com, so that we may be aware of the issue and consider how it might be addressed.
Please see here for information on accessibility at this year's Annual Meeting.
The AAR has prepared some guidelines on making presentations accessible and understandable for persons with disabilities. Please see the Guidelines for Accessible Presentations page to review these guidelines.
All meeting rooms are accessible by elevator (doors are wide enough to accommodate wheelchairs) or wheelchair lift.
A limited number of guest rooms are set aside for people with disabilities. If you need disability accommodations, please indicate your specific needs in the special requests field during the housing process online or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions may also be directed to 1-404-727-7972.
Attendees with disabilities who need information regarding special assistance during the meeting, excluding hotel accommodations, should contact the Annual Meeting Planners, by phone at 1-404-727-1461, by fax at 1-404-727-7959, via e-mail at email@example.com, or by surface mail c/o AAR / 825 Houston Mill Road, Suite 300/ Atlanta, Georgia 30329-4205 / USA.
Contact by Deaf, Hard-of-Hearing, Speech-Impaired
Most hearing-impaired members will prefer — like most hearing users — to contact us by e-mail. Inquiries sent to firstname.lastname@example.org will be routed to the appropriate staff member. Individual staff e-mail addresses are listed on the staff page of this website.
Individuals who need real-time interaction are welcome to contact us by phone or chat.
The AAR does not have a telecommunication device for the deaf (TDD) or teletypewriter (TTY), but is prepared to receive calls using the voice-to-TDD relay service. Staff members have resources to familiarize themselves with how these calls are made and received, as well as with the codes (GA, SK, QQ) and situations common to voice-to-TDD phone calls.
Note to individuals outside the United States: For billing reasons, these numbers may reject calls from some areas outside the US. Persons not in the US should first inquire of their local telephone service whether a relay service exists to which they can dial directly.
The AAR does not maintain an open chat line, but with minimal advance warning we will be happy to set up a chat window on any of the major instant messaging services. We also have several staff members who are set up to receive SMS messages on their personal cell phones, who will be happy to use the phones for this purpose.
