Earlier this month has seen the fantastic launch of the e-Accessibility Action Plan. The plan sets out to make the use of the internet more accessible to disabled people. This is yet another fantastic step forward in giving disabled people freedom of access and the essential skills that are needed for the modern employee. It is not only socially correct but also economically imperative.

On average, 1 in 5 of the consumer population are disabled. This presents a huge number of potential sales which have either been marginally skimmed or completely untapped. Whatever the case, the initiative to make the internet more accessible to the disabled can only bring positive gains for all social and economic stakeholders.
