MetadataShow full item record
This chapter discusses an eLearning platform that is usable by persons with low vision. To start with, such a platform is achieved by incorporating technological advances such as: use of text with the highest possible contrast; use of varying font size; among other customized Human Computer Interaction (HCI) effects. Moreover, use of complicated, decorative or cursive fonts should be avoided, as well as italic text and capital letters, which can be difficult for users with reading impairments. In summary, this chapter supports the fact that eLearning is possible for persons with low vision, provided that all the necessary technological advances have been considered.
