Digital Technology is becoming ever more used by people with learning disabilities for information, entertainment, to socialise and enjoy self-expression. This book explores these important issues, establishing how page design, use of images and other factors facilitate or inhibit information access and information behaviour more generally.

He recently completed a British Academy Fellowship on 'The Digital Lives of People with Learning Disabilities', extending and complementing his PhD thesis which examined web site design for the same cohort. Peter is the author/co-author of three books and over 130 journal articles and book chapters.
