Free Tool to Assess Workplace Technology Accessibility for All U.S. Employers

The ODEP-funded Partnership on Employment and Accessible Technology (PEAT) has enhanced TechCheck, a free, interactive tool that helps organizations evaluate their accessible workplace technology efforts and find resources to develop them further. TechCheck gives users a confidential benchmarking “snapshot” of the current state of their workplace technology, recommended accessibility goals and steps they can take to achieve them. Updated features of the tool include automatic scoring and a customized list of resource links based on user responses, making TechCheck a natural step for employers seeking to build or fine-tune an accessible workplace technology initiative.

TechCheck is scalable and intended for U.S. employers of all types—public or private sector, large or small.
What you can expect:
  • It’s quick and easy. TechCheck takes about 10-15 minutes to complete.
  • You’ll get rapid feedback. After completing the questions, you’ll receive a Readout evaluation of where you stand across several dimensions, from internal training efforts to procurement policies.
  • It’s completely confidential. PEAT does not retain your answers except to create your customized Readout. And we will never publish any of your answers, or share that you have participated in TechCheck without your explicit permission.
  • A foundation for building a more accessible workplace. TechCheck provides formal documentation that you can use to win support from management to develop your accessible technology efforts further.
