Who's Surfing? Internet Access and Computer Use by Visually Impaired Youths and Adults.
Gerber, Elaine; Kirchner, Corinne
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v95 n3 p176-81 Mar 2001
The Census Bureau's 1999 Survey of Income and Program Participation found that Internet access and computer use by people with visual impairments is substantially (30 percent) less than that for people with no disabilities. Age, employment, and the presence of additional impairments also affected computer use. Results suggest over a million individuals could benefit from visually enhanced Internet/computer adaptations.
