Buzzi M., Andronico P., Leporini B. Accessibility and usability of search engines: a preliminary study. In: User Interface for All (UI4ALL) (Vienna, Austria, 28-29 June 2004). Proceedings, vol. 1 Workshop Adjunct Proceedings available on line, 2004.
Due to the enormous amount of information on the Internet today, search engines have become an indispensable tool for finding specific, appropriate information. Therefore, it is essential for search engines to offer user interfaces that are easy to use and accessible to all. In this study we describe the initial steps of a project aimed at evaluating the accessibility and usability of several popular search tools. The analysis is centered on two user categories: sighted and blind users. With this goal in mind, we collected individual feedback in order to determine whether it is possible to improve interface design.
