Nabil Eid, Free eBook "Disability and Bridging the Digital Divide"

Disability and Bridging the Digital Divide . ICT Accessibility and Assistive Technology For People with All Abilities 

The e-book is made available for FREE and can be downloaded through Ruh Global Communications website!Here

http://www.ruhglobal.com/nabil-eid/ 
This book gives an overview on disability and bridging the digital divide for people of all abilities. The focus is upon the use of e-accessibility, Assistive Technology and accessible ICTs to support persons with disabilities. The development of modern Assistive Technology (AT) offers unprecedented levels of access to information and communication and improves their functional capabilities for persons with disabilities.

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is of course an enabling technology and we should not lose sight of this fact. If it is not properly planed, managed and implemented it might put us into social gaps or to the `Digital Divide’. I strongly believe that all of us are here because we all agree that none of us should be left out in isolation in this highly useful and challenging digital world. And this is why ICT accessibility is very important to all of us, especially, the persons with disabilities.

Finally, I am completely convinced, together we can make ICT accessibility a reality around the world. Together we can set the stage for effective multi-stakeholder engagement in promoting accessible ICTs, an essential enabler of the rights of persons with disabilities in information society and our digital world.

Thank you for sharing Nabil Eid.

Right now, we have this upgraded project in the Philippine Government Community center initiative and one of our priority sector is the PWD or the Differently-Abled Group. We have started conducting trainings for them.

This will be very helpful.

Would you mind if I also share this in our community? I will just include a link to this post? would it be ok with you?

Will show you the post too once you will allow us to share this to our local community.
