IBM Accessibility Technology Opens Web to Students and Faculty at California State University, Long BeachBy AT Journal, Vol. 121, No. 1
Publication Date: May 2006
Article discusses how WebAdapt2Me software from IBM helps students and faculty to access the Internet at California State University at Long Beach. WebAdapt2Me allows individuals to view websites in a way that is most convenient for their needs. For example, people with low vision can change the size of the text and the colors and contrast for easier viewing, while people with learning disabilities can reduce the visual clutter on the page by reducing several columns into one. People with visual and learning disabilities can also have text read out loud by using IBM’s ViaVoice speech synthesizer. Implications for making WebAdapt2Me available on campuses all over the world are discussed.
