Disability has traditionally posed a significant barrier for millions of individuals who are unable to benefit from current technologies such as digital interfaces, the internet, and personal computers. Nowadays, developments in information communication and technology (ICT) are transforming the way we handle and interact with our environment, making it easier and more convenient. However, individuals with disabilities face numerous restrictions and challenges, hindering their full involvement and access to the devices. This paper proposes an efficient and trusted communication mechanism that utilizes knowledge factors and friendship similarity schemes to improve the accessibility and accuracy of information transmission in a networked environment for disabled people. The proposed mechanism ensures the involvement of trusted devices in the network for accuracy and immediate decisions for disabled individual. The proposed approach is validated and compared to existing methods using various security metrics, including social trust, objective trust, experienced trust, and recommended trust. Through this research, we aim to address the barriers faced by individuals with disabilities and provide them with equal opportunities to benefit from modern technological advancements.
