Thank you for your comment,Jafaru. You are absolutely correct in pointing out that 15% is a large population group and that the disability impact often extends to the family. This is most apparent when it comes to the hidden costs of disability which vary from being huge i.e. unpaid family care to the more mundane everyday costs related to the needs of some persons with disabilities. On the assistive devices and technologies you are spot on. There is so much potential to use accessible ICT in e-governance, Smart cities and as an education tool.
