People with disabilities and special needs may encounter difficulties in performing activities of daily living (ADLs), which affects their quality of life. Therefore, they have always sought alternative solutions and ways to be as autonomous as possible in performing activities of daily living in different areas such as education, work and even leisure and entertainment. Technology has opened up previously unthinkable scenarios by providing software and hardware that can compensate for the possible limitations of people with disabilities. There would be many examples we could cite for many categories of users.
