INTRODUCTION Several reports describing the status of disabled individuals with respect to careers in science and engineering have been published (Reddon, Davis, & Welsh-Brown, 1978; U.S. Government Report, 1989). They indicate that disabled individuals are seriously under-represented in both areas. It has been suggested that attitudinal and physical barriers exist that can make pursuit of careers in technically oriented disciplines less attractive for people with physical or learning disabilities. Some of the negative attitudes may arise from a lack of information about the capabilities of people with disabilities, or about the technology available to help disabled individuals meet physical and perceptual requirements. For those who are blind or who have visual impairments (and some people with specific learning disabilities), one major physical barrier is access to the vast amount of information that is part of scientific disciplines. With the growing use of electronically stored data and adaptive technologies, more information is being made accessible to this segment of the population. Textual material can be acquired by use of recorded media, computer files can be read using speech synthesis, display enhancement, or Braille output.
