This report aims to examine the ways in which information and communication technologies (ICTs) were used by persons with disabilities (PWDs) in Myanmar. User experiences and barriers to use, as well as the extent to which ICTs can improve aspects of PWDs’ lives such as education, transportation and livelihoods, are discussed. Qualitative research in the form of focus group discussions, in-depth interviews and key informant interviews form the primary evidence base for this report. Over 100 respondents were interviewed in Yangon, Mandalay, Shan State and Ayeyarwady in May 2018.
