Simulating Disability

How can people without disabilities understand some of the challenges faced by people with disabilities? Simulations and video clips can help get the message across but asking a person with a disability may be best. 

As part of their mission to increase web access, WebAIM offers four simulation experiences on their website (toward the bottom of the page). Each one gives some information about the disability. The experience of the screen reader is especially worthwhile.

Use of Macros as an Accessibility Strategy

Macros are coded sets of instructions added to existing programs to change or enhance their functionality. In some cases, macros are easy to create and implement; in others, they may require sophisticated programming knowledge. This article talks about how macros can be used as an important accessibility tool and various ways to develop them.

Examples of Macro Use

  • Macros can be used to simplify the execution of complex functions, particularly those that need to be repeated. For example, users may need to go through documents imported from other sources to find and remove extraneous page breaks; a macro can be written to initiate and perform this process with a single key combination.
