Modality Translation Services Program
The Trace Center at the University of Wisconsin has recently launched a "Modality Translation Services" research program designed to bring together the work of many different researchers and companies to create a spectrum of services for future use. The project is in its initial proof-of-concept stages under funding from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) and NSF.
