Editor's Notes

  • I would like to introduce Capti
  • I don’t think I need to convince anyone that there is too much content on the Web and never enough time to process itThis is even more true for people with vision impairments who have to use Assistive Technology such as screen readers
  • Let’s examine how modern assistive technology help access web-based content.People with vision impairments access the web using screen readers and magnifiers– unfortunately these tools offer only basic functionality- If you encounter any information, you better read it right awayThere are other tools for managing and processing information that enable the user to compile a reading listTools such as…Enable users to build a reading listUnfortunately, one of the problems with these tools is a lack of integration with screen readers, which makes these tools less usable than they could have been. For instance, having compiled a reading list, a blind user still has to manually use a screen reader to listen through the list. Further, these tools have been designed for sighted people and they have no way of remembering where the user was reading with the screen readerFor sighted people, these tools help organize information for later reading, but one still has to find the time to read the content, so for many people the reading list ended up being a trashbin of content they never read
  • I would like to present Capti – a web browsing application that enables users to:1234
  • Capti is universally accessible and can be used visually or non-visuallyIt can be used to read news, blogs, online books, encyclopedia, etc.It can be used on the go, at the desk, or while relaxingEXAMPLE
