Over the last few years information and communication technologies have become an essential part of daily life, affecting education, employment, and leisure, among other activities. Nonetheless, many individuals still reap few or no benefits from these technologies, and there are resilient gaps in their use. Within this larger context, this paper examines the Internet digital divide between people with and without disabilities from a multidimensional approach. Rather than analysing the gap in terms of “haves” and “have-nots”, a range of Internet-related dimensions—affordability, motivation and attitudes, skills, usage, and others—is taken into account.
