Buzzi M., Leporini B. Is Wikipedia usable for the blind?. In: W4A2008 - 2008 International Cross-Disciplinary Conference on Web Accessibility (Beijing, China, 21-22 April 2008). Proceedings, pp. 15 - 22. (ACM International Conference Proceeding Series, vol. 317). ACM, 2008.
Today wikis are becoming increasingly widespread, and offer great benefits in a variety of collaborative environments. Therefore, to be universally valuable, wiki systems should be easy to use for anyone, regardless of ability. This paper describes obstacles that a blind user may encounter when interacting via screen reader with Wikipedia, and offers some suggestions for improving usability.
