Abstract
(English)
The aim of this work is to provide designers and developers of Web applications with support to obtain systems that are usable for vision-impaired users. To this end, we have defined a number of design criteria to improve Web site navigation through screen readers or other similar devices. A navigation test by blind and vision-impaired subjects showed that our criteria improved Web site usability both qualitatively and quantitatively. An inspection-based tool has been developed to ease application of such criteria. Its main features are presented along with a discussion of some application results.
