Web Accessibility in an Educational Context

October 25th, 2009

I’m currently at the annual meeting for the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society and a few hours ago I was attending a set of presentations by the Internet TG on Input and Output on the Web. One of the talks that caught my attention was by Wayne Shebilske of Wright State University on the use of screen readers to help impaired students complete tasks within educational programs such as WebCT, student status management software, and the like. There seem to be many problems with such tools as Dr. Shebilske pointed out based on his study. I think this could be a prime candidate for SW technologies to step in to improve the end user experience. I foresee using such tools along with technologies like RDFa to give the user a better representation of the content being displayed and improving the overall quality of life for these individuals.
