Bridging the Digital Divide

Disability Bridging the Digital Divide

By Nabil Eid, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is of course an enabling technology and we should not lose sight of this fact. If it is not properly planed, managed and implemented it might put us into social gaps or to the `Digital Divide’. I strongly believe that all of us are here because we all agree that none of us should be left out in isolation in this highly useful and challenging digital world. And this is why ICT accessibility is very important to all of us, especially, the persons with disabilities. 15 per cent of the world’s population lives with a disability. This represents about 1 billion people globally. (ICTs) and assistive technologies are a unique infrastructure that expand access to key public services, promoting digital inclusion. Throughout the world, persons living with disabilities are already benefitting from the advantages of ICT-enabled applications and AT services.
