Exploring Equality of Use and Access to Public E-services for People with Disability: A Study of Disability, Public e-services and IT Policies
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
Discussion of the equal use and access to public e-services for people with disability does not present a coherent picture of Information Technology (IT) policies, public e-services and disability. Current studies usually take care of one or two of these subjects together, for example use and accessibility issues of public e-services from the viewpoints of users with disability, or IT policies and guidelines regarding use and access to public e-services for all people, or limitations of technology in supporting people with disability to equally use and access public e-services. In this study, in order to explore the equality of use and access to public e-services for people with disability, I will apply a framework proposed by Orlikowski (1992). On this account, I will explore the equal use and access to public e-services from three aspects of experiences and expectations of people with disability, public e-services and disability features available on them, and IT policies in combination.
