Disability and the Internet: Confronting a Digital Divide.

Jaeger, Paul T.

From websites to mobile devices, cyberspace has revolutionized the lived experience of disability - frequently for better, but sometimes for worse. Paul Jaeger offers a sweeping examination of the complex and often contradictory relationships between people with disabilities and the Internet. Tracing the historical and legal evolution of the digital disability divide in the realms of education, work, social life, and culture, and also exploring avenues of policy reform and technology development, Jaeger connects individual experiences with the larger story of technology's promise and limitations for providing equal access online.
