Abstract

Researchers worked intensively with a group of people with aphasia to develop a picture
of barriers and facilitators to web access for people with communication disabilities. It
was found that people with aphasia encounter similar problems using the Web as those
with no language impairment. However, the impact of these problems is more
pronounced for this group. In addition, web access for people with aphasia was found to
be mediated by a range of physical, cognitive and social barriers that extend far beyond
the individual's language impairments. A prototype web site incorporating the findings is
being evaluated.
