assistive technologists. 

4. Organizations that provide services to people with disabili-ties: 
hospitals, private and public rehabilitation institutes, universities and
colleges. 

5. Organizations that deal with accessibility and disability issues: 
advocacy groups, social justice groups, and human rights watchdogs. 

6. Organizations that choose products and services according to some
criterion of accessibility for people with disabilities. 

7. Organizations that train people with disabilities to use assistive

8. Seniors: older people tend to have more disabilities. 

9. Children: well-designed pages are easier for children to use. 

10. The millions of people who do not have multimedia computers, who use
text-based browsers, or have slow modems.
