ABSTRACT

The equality of rights and chances for all citizens is one of the most discussed and supported issues in the international public opinion. This issue has a special value also in projects started by the European Union. Particularly for interactive systems the challenge of ensuring the access represents a way to progress towards a real equality of chances for all people who live in unprivileged circumstances, especially for the ones with disabilities. Thus this article aims to investigate the social consequences of this movement depending on the type of disability, the impact of disability on the interaction of the persons in question and the European initiatives to promote the “electronic accessibility” (e-Accessibility).
