This information comes from the study 'Disability, Integration and the Role of ICT' that Famma-Cocemfe Madrid and Cocemfe Barcelona have done in collaboration with Fundación Vodafone Spain
The study indicates that 86.3% of people with disabilities have mobile phones and three out of four have a computer for personal use (desktop 47.2% and portable 40.3%). Young people with disabilities and those with more income are the most to have these devices, but less than 10% are adapted.
In addition, 62.2% of people with disabilities have a 'smartphone', almost half of them use their computer daily and more than eight out of ten of those with mobile use it daily. It is also important to note that 17.1% of people with disabilities has other technological devices that help them in their daily tasks.
Regarding Internet use, 68.6% of them connect with some frequency to the Internet and nearly 50% access daily. They preferred mobile devices to connect to the Internet, ahead of laptops and desktops.
With respect to the use of social networks, two-thirds of those who use Internet participate in a social network, especially Facebook, and three out of four use instant messaging.
Almost one in four disabled people think that Internet provides them autonomy and independence, a situation more valued between people with higher degrees of disability.
To carry out this study were conducted, in late 2015, surveys over a sample of 1,039 people, representative of the different areas of disability, providing the latest data on disability and the role of new technologies.
