The World Health Organization estimates that 15% of the world's population has some form of disability, 2-4% of them severely so. That is an estimated 1 billion people worldwide; making people with disabilities the largest minority group in the world.

There are a huge range of disabilities, which can be divided roughly into four categories:

  • Visual - These users can benefit from the use of screen readers, screen magnification, controlling screen contrast, or braille display.
  • Auditory - These users can benefit from captioning, transcripts or sign language video.
  • Motor - These users can benefit from a range of assistive technologies for motor impairments: voice recognition software, eye tracking, single-switch access, head wand, sip and puff switch, oversized trackball mouse, adaptive keyboard or other assistive technologies.
  • Cognitive - These users can benefit from supplemental media, structural organization of content, clear and simple writing.
