A new international research report commissioned by ACCAN reports on 16 high-speed broadband applications that can provide enormous benefits to people with disabilities. The report was conducted between November 2009 and January 2010 and discusses the uses of broadband applications in Europe, the United States and Japan. The study is also timely with regard to the work being undertaken to establish the National Disability Strategy. Preliminary findings from the study have resulted in input being provided to the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy for its involvement in the Inter-Departmental Committee on the National Disability Strategy.
