Abstract

Blind persons do not get any information related to the visual arrangement or the design of objects in a web page. The objective of this paper is to identify this information and to prove that the lack of access to this visual information leads consequently to a lack of access to the informational content. We call “enhanced accessibility” accessibility to this type of information.
