In the course of building and maintaining the DeveloperSpace, we encountered a number of other interesting summative documents that did not deal with our topic (Access to Information and communication technologies) but did deal with other aspects of disability to the lives of people with disabilities (or digital literacy, aging etc.). These documents do not relate directly to 'Access to ICT’ but they are valuable resources and they do help people interested in access to ICT better understand the lives of people with disabilities and the context into which ICT access must work.
Here then is a widely varying list of resource links relating to ‘other aspects of disability and the lives of people with disabilities’, grouped into related clusters.
