The T2RERC Demand-Pull project focuses on the transfer of emerging technology solutions to the marketplace for people with disabilities.  The 2003-2004 project on technology for people with visual impairments has collected information on the current status of AT and the technology that is essential to meet the current and future needs of people with visual impairment.  This session will present the important findings from the Stakeholders Forum on Visual Impairment and the problem statements that resulted from these activities.   Problem statements call for development of needed technology in four areas:  access to textual information, access to graphical information, access to consumer electronics, and way finding technologies.
