It is evident that E-Technology (i.e. The Internet, social media… etc.) play a significant role in maintaining and supporting our digital society in various sectors from business, education, health and government and others. E-Technologies are now available worldwide for numerous numbers of universal users to increase collaboration, communication, interaction, creativity, critical thinking and problem solving in developing and developed countries. It is anticipated, and there is evidence gathering that E-technologies use will increase work performance, productivity, innovation, workers’ satisfaction, reduce cost and maintenance. On the other hand, adopting e-technologies will bring various negative aspects in relation to security, privacy, legal aspects and users’ frustration, as majorities of these e-technologies are still neglecting important aspects, i.e. Human Computer Interaction and usability. It is anticipated that these aspects will assist to improve the system functionality, which can be used efficiently, effectively and satisfactorily by universal users, including people with disability.
