However, many people with disabilities and elderly people experience difficulties in engaging with ICT and therefore may be prevented from fully enjoying its benefits. This works against the establishment of the inclusive society demanded by the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

Every person adjusts his/her device the way it is most suitable and convenient for them. Not having the needed alterations is how people who encounter difficulties accessing standard IT equipment feel on a daily basis.
