Abstract
(English)
In this paper, we show in which way an accessible forum can be used as an educational tool and can be improved by making it more friendly to vision impaired users. For this purpose, we considered an online course for ECDL (European Computer Driving Licence), specifically addressed to blind and low vision people. First, we describe the use of an accessible forum during an online course for the ECDL and then we present a set of criteria created in order to improve Web site usability. Finally, we discuss in which way the application of our criteria can improve the navigation in the forum, once the forum has been accessed.
