The Computer/Electronic Accommodations Program (CAP) provides assistive technology and support services to Department of Defense (DoD) employees with disabilities and wounded, ill and injured Service members. These include those that are blind, have low vision, deaf, hard of hearing or have a dexterity, communication, cognitive, or learning disability. CAP increases access to information and works to remove barriers to employment opportunities by eliminating the costs of assistive technology and accommodation solutions.
CAP works closely with DoD hiring managers, supervisors and IT professionals involved in the recruitment, placement, promotion and retention of people with disabilities or wounded, ill and injured Service members. Any employee with a disability employed by a component of the Department of Defense (DoD) can request CAP assistive technology and services.
While CAP’s primary focus is on individuals with disabilities in DoD, we also provide assistance and guidance on the aging workforce, with disabling conditions that prevent them from accessing information, gaining employment, or inhibiting their workplace productivity to ensure successful employment for people with disabilities.
