Web Accessibility: A Foundation for Research (Human-Computer Interaction)by Simon Harper
Synopses & Reviews
Web Accessibility tends to be considered as a Web Design challenge and therefore existing relevant books are prescriptive tutorials on how to achieve Web accessibility. However there are hundreds, if not thousands, of research scientists, engineers, and research & development programmers working in academia and industry to advance the current Web, and to make developments in the next Web, accessible. This book, containing a strong foundation of research, is aimed at academics, scientists, engineers, and postgraduate students as the definitive, foundational text on Web Accessibility from a deeply research perspective. Written by leading experts in the field, it will provide not only an overview of existing research but will look to future developments and include expert opinions. This kind of insight cannot be derived purely from existing research publication stores such as Google Scholar.
If you need to know about deeper Web Accessibility, and about current and future trends, this is the book for you.
Covering key areas of evaluation and methodology, client-side applications, specialist and novel technologies, along with initial appraisals of disabilities, this important book provides comprehensive coverage of web accessibility. Written by leading experts in the field, it provides an overview of existing research and also looks at future developments, providing a much deeper insight than can be obtained through existing research libraries, aggregations, or search engines.
