Accessibility aware framework approach for web 2.0 and beyond

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

People with disabilities face a number of challenges in their day-to-day life with regards to access to education, health services, employment opportunities, etc. On the other hand, more information and services are available on the web that offer exceptional opportunities for all users, it is essential that no culture or segment of society is left out. Therefore, people with disabilities are perhaps the single segment of society with the most to gain from these technologies but they are facing barriers to access the contents of the web due to the way it is presented. This research will outline the foundation for building accessibility aware framework approach where people with special needs can access all electronic contents based on their disability levels. The approach provides guidelines for web composers and developers in developing accessible web applications for all types of users. Disability profile examples (blindness and deaf) were adopted to demonstrate the execution of the framework approach and present a system architecture.
