Clive Loseby: The internet's accessibility problem -- and how to fix it
The internet provides access to knowledge for billions across the world, but how accessible is it really? Website accessibility advocate Clive Loseby sheds light on why many parts of the web are closed off to those with disabilities -- and lays out some steps to make being online better for everyone.
This is a set of papers that describe accessibility issues for users with various cognitive or learning disabilities. Each issue paper takes information from Cognitive Accessibility User Research [coga-user-research] and distills it into a description of the challenges for a specific user group or web usage pattern, and suggests ways to address those challenges. This information informs the Cognitive Accessibility Roadmap and Gap analysis [coga-gap-analysis] in its identification of which solutions remain unmet at this time. The set of issue papers in this publication is not comprehensive and additional ones may be added to future publications of this document.
This document is a gap analysis and roadmap for the state of accessibility for people with learning and cognitive disabilities when using the Web and information technologies. It builds on the information presented in Cognitive Accessibility User Research [coga-user-research] and Cognitive Accessibility Issue Papers [coga-issue-papers] to evaluate where user needs remain to be met in technologies and accessibility guidelines. For various accessibility issues, this document provides a summary of issues and techniques, then identifies gaps and unmet user needs and suggest ways technologies may meet these needs in the future.
This document provides a basis for subsequent work to identify gaps in current technologies, suggest strategies to improve accessibility for these user groups, and develop guidance and techniques for web authors.
