A recent article said the government is "mounting a Web Accessibility Campaign to promote awareness of the need to make websites accessible, and to encourage businesses and organizations to adopt accessible web designs," ("Disabled to gain with drive for easy web design," The Standard, December 28.)
As a disabled person, I am of the opinion that a variety of accessibility tools should be integrated into the campaign.
As the physical handicap of each person varies, I suggest that computers be equipped with a variety of accessibility tools that handicapped users can select according to their own needs.
These tools should be easily obtainable on the websites.
For example, a certain website could have a font enlarger, voice recognition and text-to-voice functions all rolled into one.
A person with a hearing impairment could use the audio tools while a visually impaired person could use other tools.
The best idea would be to include many different accessibility tools.
Also, government departments or charities can distribute them at an affordable price to make using a computer more affordable and accessible for handicapped people.
I hope a government department or a charity could put this idea to good use.
