Cognitive accessibility of web content is still a big topic in research and not fully covered by today’s accessibility guidelines. Therefore many web-pages are difficult to understand and to navigate for people with cognitive disabilities.
The EasyReading project will improve accessibility of webpages by developing a software framework that helps people with cognitive disabilities to understand and navigate web-content.
The software framework will provide help by personalising web content in real time.
This is achieved by:
- Adaption of layout and structure of web-pages
- Annotation of web content with symbols, videos, …
- Conversion of content into a different language level, e.g. Plain Language or Easy-to-Read
