Accessibility to mainstream digital devices and the use of Digital Assistive Technologies (Digital AT) facilitates participation and improves function and independece of people with disabilities in these regions. However, mainstream access is not fully realised in LMICs and there are multiple barriers in the way for the uptake and use of Digital AT. Through a thematic analysis of interviews with eight expert professionals in the domain of provisioning Digital AT and its related services in LMICs, we discuss five steps or barriers for the uptake and use of Digital AT and have identified three practical strategies that have shown evidence to overcome these barriers. Developers of Digital AT will find these insights useful and the same will provide an understanding of the market to business strategists to deliver pathways to better accessibility services and new Digital AT.
