This five-volume directory describes almost 1,200 discretionary grants and contracts supported by the Research to Practice Division of the Office of Special Education Programs. The projects are grouped into five sections representing the seven program areas of the newly reauthorized IDEA, Part D. This volume, the fourth of the directory, describes projects concerning technology and media services. These projects are intended to: (1) support educational media activities that are designed to be of educational value to children with disabilities; (2) provide video description, open captioning, or closed captioning of television programs, videos, or educational materials; (3) distribute captioned and described videos or educational materials; (4) provide free educational materials, including textbooks, in accessible media for visually impaired and print-disabled students in elementary, secondary, postsecondary, and graduate schools; and (5) provide cultural experiences through appropriate nonprofit organizations. The projects are grouped by the competitions under which they were funded and include information on grant number, title, project director, beginning and ending dates, and contact information. An abstract describes the project's purposes, proposed methods, and proposed products. Four indexes are provided: a project director index, an organizational index, a state index, and a subject index. (CR)
