People with cognitive impairments have certain limitations in mental functionalities that can affect the way in which website content is perceived and understood. These site visitors may encounter confusing and frustrating experiences on websites without the proper context or orientation adjustments.
For example, slang and abbreviations can be very confusing for people with cognitive disabilities who do not know how to interpret the meaning. When it comes to orientation, many websites are designed in beautiful, adventurous ways. However, they can be quite confusing for people with cognitive disabilities if they don’t have the ability to focus on the elements of the site.
accessWidget helps people with cognitive disabilities by enabling features on a website that add clarification and focus to website elements. For example, accessWidget’s interface comes with a built-in dictionary for on-demand definitions. In addition, website elements are outlined and focused so that site visitors can clearly see the flow of a website without being distracted.
accessWidget’s interface also offers a ‘Cognitive Disabilities’ Profile. Site visitors who require extra focus to comprehend site elements may not fully understand which accessibility adjustments are for them. With accessWidget’s ‘Cognitive Disabilities’ Profile, they can easily spot the profile for them and enable all of the aforementioned adjustments for fast, simple, and comprehensive web accessibility.
