This project, prepared for the Australian Bureau of Statistics, National Education Services Unit in Melbourne, Australia, explores Web-based education for the visually impaired. Working from literature and interviews of visually impaired students and their teachers, new guidelines and techniques were designed to maximize not only accessibility but also user comprehension of Web pages, particularly those containing tabular and graphical information. A usability study was then performed to evaluate the effectiveness of these new guidelines. Accessibility and comprehension for both blind and low-vision users were increased when Web pages were developed following the new guidelines and techniques.
