In understanding commonalities between minority groups in relation to access to and affordability of technology, the paper argues that these can no longer be considered `minority issues as they affect a significant proportion of the Australian population. Rather, affordability needs to be framed as part of a wider discussion about access and accessibility. Furthermore, notions of access and accessibility should be emphasised and clearly distinguished from mere availability.
