A Model-Based Tool to develop an Accessible Media Player

María González-García, Lourdes Moreno, Paloma Martínez
2015 Proceedings of the 17th International ACM SIGACCESS Conference on Computers & Accessibility - ASSETS '15  
The spectacular rise of multimedia Web content, especially video and audio content, makes addressing its accessibility a matter of urgency.  ...  To accomplish this work, a review of Accessibility Standards Regulation has been carried out, a set of accessibility requirements for accessible media players is proposed and a modelling of these requirements  ...  In addition, it is essential to take into consideration the WAI's User Agent Accessibility Guidelines (UAAG) [W3C, 94] because of the amount of accessibility barriers that appear within the user agent  ...

An Uninteresting Tour Through Why Our Research Papers Aren't Accessible

Jeffrey P. Bigham, Erin L. Brady, Cole Gleason, Anhong Guo, David A. Shamma
2016 Proceedings of the 2016 CHI Conference Extended Abstracts on Human Factors in Computing Systems - CHI EA '16  
Over the past few years, we have tried everything from writing guidelines and giving accessibility feedback, to enforcing accessibility standards and volunteering to make PDFs accessible ourselves.  ...  Making accessible research papers is as much about our choices as a community: our choice of publication format, and our choice to make accessibility a voluntary task for authors.  ...  Acknowledgements We woud like to thank our reviewers for their helpful comments, and the many people who have contributed to helping us make PDFs more accessible over the past few years.  ...

Vi-bowling

Tony Morelli, John Foley, Eelke Folmer
2010 Proceedings of the 12th international ACM SIGACCESS conference on Computers and accessibility - ASSETS '10  
All players enjoyed VI Bowling and the challenge tactile dowsing pro vided. Players could throw their ball with an average error of 9.76 degrees using tactile dowsing.  ...  For individuals with visual im pairments, exergames have the potential to reduce health disparities as they may be safer to play and can be played without the help of others.  ...  As the spatial challenge part is entirely visual this part was excluded from the game and instead the computer randomly aimed for the player.  ...
