Learning from Internet Requirements of People with Communication Needs
"A supportive Web browser, developed by the EU WWAAC project, aims to make the Internet easier to use by people with complex communication needs who use graphic symbol-based augmentative and alternative communication. Further user consultations with older users, people with aphasia and people with learning disabilities, specifically with dyslexia, have demonstrated that the ability to personalize Internet software ...can potentially provide more accessible and usable interfaces for other user groups."
The Design of Spoken Music Web Browser for Teaching Learning-Disabled Children: A Chevé System Approach to Music Notation
"We have developed a Spoken Music Web Browser which incorporates Chevé system, a system of musical notation with the idea of indicating notes by numbers, to bridge the gap between the cognition of learning-disabled children and music notation."
Automatic Modification of Text for People with Learning Disabilities Using Internet Services
"The paper presents the results of a user study that investigates the applicability of automatic text modifications to support learning disabled people in text comprehension while browsing the Internet. It presents some results that contradict traditional beliefs in regard to better support reading in this target group by providing them with screen readers."
WebAIM: Cognitive Disability Simulation
"The goal of this simulation is to provide the user with an understanding of the experience a person with a cognitive impairment might experience while navigating a web site."
Web-Based Assistive Technology Interventions for Cognitive Impairments After Traumatic Brain Injury: A Selective Review and Two Case Studies
# 1 evaluated using a Compaq PDA with Web pages providing assistance during a walking task. # 2 added a wireless network to ease researcher/respondent interactions while participants set an alarm clock. Conclusion: Web-based interventions could be used by people with TBI.
