The Internet was created as a universal network for the acquisition and treatment of information. However, it can also be an obstacle for people with some type of disability.
For this reason, the partners of “Vimianzo. Do mar á terra” project are dedicated to eliminating, as far as possible, the most common obstacles facing Internet users who are elderly or suffering from physical, mental, sensory or cognitive disabilities that impede access to the web.
