Every day, there are thousands of people who are found incapable of using the World Wide Web for many different reasons.
People with a wide variety of physical, sensory, and cognitive disabilities can find a large portion of the World Wide Web very difficult, if not impossible, to use.
In fact, people without disabilities can also find themselves in a difficult situation to use the World Wide Web in certain situations, such as people using a slow or no Internet connection, people with “temporary disabilities” such as a broken arm, and not forgetting people with changing abilities due to aging.
All of these people lack the access to the World Wide Web.
Find out how you can overcome these obstacles by joining us at ICT Accessibility Seminar 2009!
