Abstract

Accessibility of documents in electronic format is an important element of the e-inclusion process. An aspect that needs further investigation is the connection between the general problem of accessibility and the specific application domains. An interesting example is represented by Education, because an intense use of the ICT is foreseen in it. By means of the use of scenarios, a description of the relationships between technologies for Education and Accessibility is analyzed in three different situations: a current class with typically employed technologies, a class where all existing technologies are used and a third scenario in which the learning environment is an intelligent environment. The comparison highlights in particular the differences between technologies, accessibility problems and approaches for their solution.
