Krishna Jayakar, Chun Liu, Gary Madden and Eun-A Park
Despite the promise of broadband to improve the lives of persons with disabilities, there are wide disparities in access and usage between disabled and non-disabled populations. This paper examines ten case studies of policies and programs promoting ICT and broadband access for persons with disabilities in the leading economies of the Asia-Pacific region, in order to identify factors behind programs that succeed on the basis of effectiveness and cost efficiency.
