ICT (information and communications technology - or technologies) is an umbrella term that includes any communication device or application, encompassing: radio, television, cellular phones, computer and network hardware and software, satellite systems and so on, as well as the various services and applications associated with them, such as videoconferencing and distance learning. ICTs are often spoken of in a particular context, such as ICTs in education, health care, or libraries. The term is somewhat more common outside of the United States. 

There’s a great, just published ETSI Guide we may wish to reference (or at least, some may find it useful) I attach,

I'm not sure what ICT is (I went back and searched the original comments doc to see if it was defined there, but couldn't find it). To the extent we are using established usability principles and expertise, some amount of multi cultural expertise is embedded in them (color is one of those areas that has strongly different meanings across cultures; it would be really useful if someone had a handy reference on color to add to 10.2). It might be worth calling that out explicitly in 10.2 - any concrete proposals for text changes on that?
