Providing resources that are accessible to all users, including those who are visually impaired, is an important consideration for all libraries. Find out about our recent usability study and best practices for accessibility.

EBSCO recently conducted a usability study for users with visual impairments, with the help of Bentley University’s User Experience Center. In partnership with the Carroll Center for the Blind, a talented and diverse group of college students was recruited for participation in the study. In this professional environment, students shared their approach to online research and demonstrated how they navigated and experienced research resources.

In a webinar hosted by Jill Power, Technical Product Manager on the User Experience and Platform Team at EBSCO, we shared the results of this important study, as well as tips and tools to help ensure that your library resources are accessible to visually impaired researchers.

Subjects covered in the webinar included:

  • User preferences and expectations for online research by users with visual impairments
  • The main challenges faced by users with visual impairments
  • Best practices and recommendations for addressing those challenges with your own website
