I agree with your question as

I agree with your question as to "can every effort really be made?"

I also think it's important for us to remember that not only distance from an internet connection contributes to some people's inability to use a computer. There are those people who might find a great deal of internet use very taxing for reasons pertaining to physical disabilities, such as visual trouble, or even tendonitis in the wrists. I think while we're making it easier for people to get to a computer and use, it we should also be providing them with tools to make the best use of it when they get there. Better voice-activated software would be a good place to start. Have any of you tried to use the software on the market now, which supposedl yallows you to speak to the computer and have it type exactly whta you're saying? I've tried a few of them, and they never work very well...
