Achieving Universal Web Access through Specialized User Interfaces

Abstract

The paper discusses how accessibility helps in extending the range of goals that users (disabled or not) can achieve, and how it fails to increase user bandwidth for achieving those goals. The paper then illustrates how transcoders that satisfy a set of requirements, can effectively deal with the problem of gen- erating, on the fly, specialized user interfaces that would support a more universal web access leading to a greater bandwidth. An informal analysis of a commercially available text-transcoder is used as an exam- ple of what can be done.
