IMPROVING HTML DATA TABLES NAVIGATION - A Method to obtain Information for Visually Impaired People

Juan Manuel Fernández, Vicenç Soler, Jordi Roig

Abstract

Nowadays the broad use of the new technologies based on the Web gives facilities to people all over the world, but for impaired people. This leads us to the field of Web Accessibility and one of the biggest problems in it is the use of data tables on HTML documents. For disabled users, elements such as these and their natural bi-dimensional structure make more difficult to navigate than for the rest of the users. In this paper we present a solution to avoid those difficulties that disabled users find while navigating. The system we propose is based on the way a non-disabled person visualizes the table contents, but avoiding the processing of the images which is the natural procedure.
