Press Release 08-209 - Video
An interview with the leaders of Project ACE based at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT).

Visually impaired students face a number of challenges when it comes to pursuing degrees and careers in computer science. Enter Project ACE, an initiative based at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) that is working to help visually impaired students navigate these challenges and achieve success. In this interview, Project ACE co-principle investigators Stephanie Ludi and Thomas Reichlmayr, both professors of software engineering at RIT, discuss the importance of including these students in the field of computer science and their experiences hosting ImagineIT, a workshop for visually impaired students. They are joined by Jeremy Leakakos, a student at RIT who also worked with the workshop participants.
