The percentage of people with disabilities in many populations is between
10% and 20%.
Not all disabilities affect access to information technologies such
as the Web (for instance, difficulty walking, or a heart condition,
would not affect Web access) but many do.
Just as with other parts of the population, not all people with disabilities
have access to the Web. But the number of people using the Web is steadily
increasing, and for people with disabilities access to this technology
is sometimes even more critical than for the general population which
may have an easier time accessing traditional sources of information
such as print media.
