1. Introduction

People are diverse! - some people are not able to use the 'standard' devices that you or I use in our every-day lives. And so, devices have been specially developed to allow for these differences. Impairments include

  • Visually impaired (partial or total blindness)
  • Motor impaired (difficulty in movement)
  • Auditory impaired (difficulty in hearing)

Some disabilities mean that the input devices themselves need to be placed at convenient locations for the person. For example mounted on a wheel-chair.

This section will introduce you to some of the clever devices that have been developed to allow access to ict for almost everyone.
