Training People with Disabilities in the Use of IT: A Community Case
Access to information and related technologies is still an issue for disabled people across Mexico, especially for those with basic literacy. This paper describes the implementation of a training course in the use of the computer for people with disabilities, aimed to equip them with basic skills that will allow them to run a computer lab for the benefit of their community. Technical adaptations and didactic strategies for people with motor disabilities and visual impairment are described, as well as opinions of the participants on the conduction of the training.
