This article presents the updating of a grounded methodology literature review on the use of mobile devices by people who are visually impaired. In this article, inclusion in technology is defined and discussed. It is found that little literature is available on the inclusive use of mobile devices and visual impairment, eventhough these technologies are in widespread use by people with visual impairments. The studies that do exist, however, show that the use of mobile technologies has great scope to support people with visual impairment in school and post-compulsory education. The study concludes that more research and more sophisticated models of support with mobile support is needed if people with visual impairments are to be supported most effectively.
