In the contemporary digital world, a lot of information needs to be processed every day. Our security depends on the quick and accurate processing of this information. Figure-based information processing is faster and simpler than the text-based one. The level of IT skills and skills may be lower in this way, so a system that is applicable to a broader social circle is needed. The solution would be to make the use of info-communication tools accessible to people with low vision, those with learning difficulties, non-speakers, the elderly and children who are unable to read because of their age. In this article, the author attempts to illustrate the difference in the processing of visual and textual information through a simple survey and make recommendations for the ergonomic compensation of digital competence gaps with software.
