New Smart City Toolkit Guides Government to Help Disabled

You know how Microsoft has handy templates you can use for everything from a cover letter to a graduation open house invitation? Turns out their templates aren’t limited to small business and personal use –  they have a whole suite of tools and templates focused on how local governments can use technology to better serve people with disabilities.

Smart Cities for All currently has four toolkits:

  • Guide to implementing priority ICT accessibility standards
  • Guide to adopting an ICT accessibility procurement policy
  • Communicating the case for stronger Commitment to digital inclusion in cities
  • Database of solutions for digital inclusion in cities

And it looks like they’re gearing up for more.
