Computer Access

Through computers, people of all abilities can participate more fully in many aspects of life. Most activities such as shopping, paying bills, finding information, keeping in touch with family and friends are easier and less expensive to do on the Internet than in person or by phone. This is especially true for people whose mobility and function are limited. The Internet provides access to education, services, people, products, jobs and information that might otherwise be inaccessible. Today, if you can operate a computer, you can access the world.
