Answer #4: That is UW’s accessibility program, Taskar Center for Accessible Technology. They help give people with disabilities access to computers, and the ability to use them just as well as anyone.

Answer #5: The amount of money made per year depends on your experience, education, company, and ability. Anywhere from $50,000 to $2.5 million per year.
