Abstract
(English)
An interface conforming to W3C ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) suite would overcome many accessibility and usability problems that prevent blind users from actively contributing to collaborative knowledge. In a previous phase of our study we identified problems of interaction via screen reader with Wikipedia, then proposed an ARIA-based modified Wikipedia editing page. The new user interface (UI) is functionally equivalent to the original Wikipedia editing page, and its appearance is very similar (apart from an additional combobox instead of a list of links), but usability is greatly enhanced. In this demo we will show interaction via Jaws screen reader using both the original and the proposed Wikipedia editing pages.
