Adjusting for disability inclusion challenges the signals used in relaying data. Recognising need for a variety of signals otherwise not available gives options to create new, complimentary sensory platforms otherwise not considered - redefining how we engage with our digital landscape.
Our bodies ingest volumes of data daily to determine a relative threat, with internal experiential shifts raising alerts to our attention. Despite the threat volume and growing impacts observed, our bodies don't interpret danger during the time spent in digital space. Increasing individuals' sensory data variety opens new opportunities for threat indications to invoke physiological response - sensing digital danger just as we do physically.
Bad actors' use of phishing in many forms to gain access is common. Phishing used against people with vision-related disabilities using assistive technology requires further conversations and considerations.
Organisational inclusion of individuals requiring assistive technology potentially incurs and assumes cyber risks for both parties. Care and consideration must be taken to protect the assistive technology user and the integrating organisation's environment.
