Evaluating the mobile web accessibility of electronic text for print impaired people in higher education
Evaluating the mobile web accessibility of electronic text for print impaired people in higher education
The aim of this extended abstract is to demonstrate a framework that provides a novel solution for evaluating the mobile web accessibility of electronic text for print impaired people in Higher Education (HE). The current framework explores over 500 device settings. Furthermore, the scope of this research is outlined alongside two research questions. The paper then concludes by suggesting the potential impact this research could have on existing standards, the public availability of metadata and guidelines, and the automatic generation of personalised eTexts as per user needs

Abstract

The aim of this extended abstract is to demonstrate a framework that provides a novel solution for evaluating the mobile web accessibility of electronic text for print impaired people in Higher Education (HE). The current framework explores over 500 device settings. Furthermore, the scope of this research is outlined alongside two research questions. The paper then concludes by suggesting the potential impact this research could have on existing standards, the public availability of metadata and guidelines, and the automatic generation of personalised eTexts as per user needs
