“15% of the world’s inhabitants is afflicted with at least one (1) disability.”

Problem

Technology is a blessing which is celebrated and embraced the world over for its utility in education, finance, engineering, law, medicine, sports, and several other aspects of daily life. Technology has made life easier for the majority of the globe’s populace. There is, however, a specific segment of society which is often left in the shadows of technology’s beacon: disabled persons.

Persons with disabilities are often ‘benched’ in the ‘game’ of technological advancements while everyone else plays ball. Recent research has estimated that approximately 18% of all people living in the United States of America alone suffer from some type of physical disability. The expenditures for disabled persons (which include: increasing awareness, improving quality of life, and expanding accessibility for the disabled in public spaces) almost reached $400,000,000,000.00 in 2006.

According to a report from the World Health Organization, 15% of the world’s inhabitants is afflicted with at least one (1) disability. A not inconsiderable portion of this 15% will never enjoy the benefits of smart devices such as tablets, personal computers, ATM machines and other electronics.

15% is too large a percentage to ignore. A greater focus and effort must be applied towards creating technology for the sole purpose of making the lives of disabled persons better.
