Abstract: IT related jobs present a good opportunity for better paying positions for people with disabilities (PWD). Online training seems to be an interesting approach, due to its reach. Building and delivering online content for this population is challenging, especially for those who are deaf or hearing impaired (DHI). We face many problems in the process of teaching the DHI student. Initially we have language related issues, the vocabulary of the Brazilian Sign Language (Libras) is poor when it comes to specific content such as IT. Then, we confront the problem of having very few tutors versed in Libras. Content format, how can we present the information to the DHI considering visual aspects? Accessible learning objects, accessible programming environment, online collaboration between DHI and Non-DHI. Real word task analysis are all discussed in the current text. We present a series of studies our lab conducted and is conducting as we create and deliver IT online content for the PWD.
