An adaptive & adaptable approach to enhance web graphics accessibility for visually impaired people
To date, efforts have been made to enable visually impaired people to gain access to graphics on the Internet. However, these studies only offer a solution for a specific type of graphic by using a fixed set of hardware. To address this, a design approach of an adaptive and adaptable architecture is introduced which takes into consideration different graphical content, input/output devices (including assistive technologies) and user's profile and preferences. This system brings the opportunity to visually impaired people to gain access to graphics via different modalities by providing an adequate accessibility interface and interaction based on their profiles and needs. Author Keywords Adaptive, adaptable, context information, graphics, visually impaired, assistive technologies. ACM Classification Keywords H5.2. Information interfaces and presentation (e.g., HCI): User Interfaces.
