One of the key trends driving revolution in Industry 4.0 is digital society and economy. In this paper, we argue that the advancement of technology in Industry 4.0, which covers growth areas such as big data and machine learning, cybersecurity, digital currencies, blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT) with expected creations of new job opportunities in the areas of Cyber Security, Data Analytics, Network Infrastructure and Software Development that can easily be done at home, has produced an ideal scenario in the context of job opportunities for People with Disabilities (PWDs). Greater accessibility to education with help from assistive technology opens up a lot of opportunities for PWDs to enhance their knowledge in Industry 4.0.
