According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 650 million people live with some type of disability that can reduce their professional and personal possibilities. Although a large number of websites, apps, and electronic devices still do not meet accessibility standards, people with disabilities are progressing towards their digital and social integration on equal terms thanks to the development of technologies, support systems, and digital tools for people with disabilities.
How Do Digital Tools Help?
Digital tools help people with disabilities in two main areas of their lives: work and personal.
On the one hand, information technology favors their personal autonomy when it comes to solving problems and daily procedures. It also makes it easier for them to access information and job opportunities.
On the other hand, advances in this area allow people with physical or sensory disabilities to use a computer thanks to adaptive instruments, tools, and interfaces. With regard to people with reduced mobility, for example, the incorporation of facial or voice recognition helps to facilitate the transfer or entry into certain spaces.
In addition, digital tools also allow you to adapt homes and tasks more closely to your needs, for example, by voice to place an order at the supermarket.
