Access to information and related technologies is still limited for disabled people across Mexico, especially for those with basic literacy. This paper describes the implementation of a training course in the use of the computer for people with disabilities (PWD), aimed to equip them with basic skills that will allow them in the near future to manage a computer lab for the benefit of their community. Five participants received training during 16 sessions of approximately two hours each, during which they learned the basics of the Windows Operating System and Microsoft Word. Technical adaptations and strategies for people with motor disabilities and visual impairment are described, as well as issues regarding the use of the computer related to disability. Results show that the use of accessibility options aided significantly participants with motor disability; however, they had problems related to the lack of precision using the mouse.
