Disabled people are a group often left behind in the 'digital divide' - which is a shame because they're also one of the groups who can benefit the most from the internet. It provides access to resources, like the NHS and support groups. It's an easier way to communicate, especially at times when going out isn't an option. It's got more accessible versions of things, such as audiobooks. It lets you shop online. It makes it possible to work from home. And it's useful for literally all the other reasons that anyone could want to use the internet for - like reading Blogs, for example.
The benefits are backed up by academia: multiple broadband studies have shown that the "net can improve both the level and quality of communication with others" and increase the sense of independence in disabled people. Which is academia talk for it's a good thing?
What makes a disability a disability is that it impedes your access to basic things - and sadly, the internet is often one of those things. The good news is that the situation is improving, but barriers are still there.
To make things even worse, disabled people are statistically more likely to be poorer. So along with physical barriers, costs are even more of a barrier than they are for non-disabled people.
