I think factors other than technology govern that one.

I'm not sure users are "technologically challenged," which sounds like
an inability to use technology (like visually challenged, cognitively
challenged, mobility challenged). They're undereducated on a specific
technological object.

At least, I like to think the people I write for are not (all) idiots
and that they just need some poor fool with a high tolerance for tedium
to explain it to them.
