A Review of Assistive Technologies: Can users access dynamically updating information?

Andy Brown, Caroline Jay

    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

    Abstract

    This report sets the scene for the SASWAT project, which aims to improve accessibility of dynamically updating Web content for visually impaired browsers, with an examination of the current state of accessibility. First it examines which technologies (Web browsers and screen readers) are used by this group: Internet Explorer and JAWS are clear favourites. Second it describes the results of an experiment, and supporting anecdotal evidence, which suggests that, at best, most users can currently reach updated content, but they must do so manually, and are rarely given any indication that any update has occurred.
