Besides fast developing Web, the problem of system usability remains live issue. There is a need to improve usability and accessibility of information systems. One part of an active matter is question about how to make Web resource more usable for people with disabilities. Importance of this topic is out of question, because besides wide spread interpretation of human with disability, sometimes it is forgotten that even color blindness is or some aging people have some sort of disability.
