New Insights on Digital Inclusion

PROVIDENCE, RI--(Marketwired - September 03, 2017) - In addition to internet accessibility, researchers invested in the ever-expanding online community are increasingly concerned about digital inclusion -- an aspect defined by the University of Maryland College Park as one's ability to access, adopt, and apply online resources within their daily life.

Organizations and companies in the United States are working to boost digital inclusion, which is a goal that will prove challenging given that a substantial number of Americans still do not have consistent access to the internet. These digital inclusion initiatives are nevertheless encouraging, because they could also prove beneficial for ameliorating the online experience for Americans with disabilities.
