    Abstract

    For people with functional impairments, access to, and independent control of, a computer can be an important part of everyday life. For example, people whose impairments prevent communication through writing or speaking can, with appropriate technology, perform these activities with computer assistance. Improved computer access has also been shown to give significant gains in educational success and employment opportunities for people with impairments. However, to be of benefit, computer systems must be accessible. That is, after all, the underlying message of this handbook.
