ABSTRACT

IT&C has a great impact on building social relations, becoming a research area in full development. Advances in technologies had allowed the development of new services, systems, products and applications for persons with disability. Since the development of technological systems can be considered an essential component of everyday life, a particular interest should be given to the role which it has in growth of personal autonomy. In the case of persons with disabilities, computers can be accessed more easily through the design of special software, suitable for a family as large users. Adaptated Information Technology (ATI) allows people with disabilities to use a computer reducing or removing obstacles arising from common interface for users. ATI facilitates access to information resources through an offsetting deficiency. The goal of ATI applications is to come to the aid of people with disabilities whose job involves using a computer, and to support their integration into the labour market, by providing a technological support. The purpose of this article is to show the importance of technologies/ devices for persons with disabilities, for the purpose of their integration into society.
