Accessibility Volume 44, Number 3, 2005 Click to enlarge
SJ 44-3
Making information technology accessible to the largest possible population of users has become a significant aspect of application and system development. Providing accessibility involves designing and modifying technology to make it accessible to users who would otherwise be unable to use it. This has become a growing element of the design process, due to government mandates as well as business considerations. Hardware and software assistive technologies have opened the Web to users with disabilities, though considerable work still needs to be done in order to achieve the goal of end-to-end accessibility for all users. This issue contains 13 papers on architectures, tools, applications, and assistive technologies designed to increase accessibility for diverse user groups.
