Accessibility isn’t only about disability.

We asked web users of 50 if they have difficulty using a computer.

  • 19% self-identified as having a disability.
  • 7% expressed difficulty using the computer to two dexterity limitations.
  • 24% expressed difficulty using the computer due to vision conditions.
  • 35% expressed difficulty using the computer due to eye fatigue.

Many more have difficulties using the computer than self-identify as having a disability.

In conclusion, statistics on disabilities understate the real need for accessible content and products.
