Human resource (HR) managers were surveyed regarding their organizations' use of online technology. The majority of respondents reported the use of 4 prominent HR technologies: online employee training, self-service benefits, benefits information dissemination, and job postings. Employee use of computers was extensive, with the majority using computers more than half the workday. Despite being unfamiliar with assistive technologies for computer users and Web accessibility issues, nearly half of the respondents reported that they had made some type of alteration to make a computer accessible to an employee with a disability. Most organizations had not trained their staff on issues regarding Web accessibility or making computers accessible and the majority of respondents wanted more information on those topics.
