Improving web accessibility using content-aware plug-ins

Wai Yu, Graham McAllister, Philip Strain, Ravi Kuber, Emma Murphy
2005 CHI '05 extended abstracts on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '05  
This paper describes a novel approach to improve blind and visually impaired people's access to the Web by using a content-aware Web browser plug-in coupled with audio and haptic tools.  ...  The Web plug-in accesses the current mouse position on-screen, and makes the co-ordinates available to the audio and haptic modalities.  ...  FUTURE WORK The content aware Web plug-in will be extended to include more features to assist visually impaired Internet users.  ...

Taming the inaccessible web

Simon Harper, Sean Bechhofer, Darren Lunn
2006 Proceedings of the 24th annual conference on Design of communication - SIGDOC '06  
In this way we find that we can indeed 'tame' inaccessible Web pages.  ...  These requirements can become problems in that the Web is visually centric with regard to presentation and information order / layout, this can (and does) hinder users who need presentation-agnostic access  ...  Annotation of Web pages provides a mechanism to enhance visually impaired peoples' access to information on Web-pages through an encoding of the meaning of that information [13] .  ...
