Study focuses on the usability of AcceSS for website accessibility. AcceSS, which stands for Accessibility through Simplification and Summarization, is an application that allows people with visual disabilities to gain an understanding of a web page more quickly by using simplification and summarization techniques. A focus group that consisted of six people with visual disabilities who used computers was conducted. The participants answered a series of questions after viewing the Yahoo! home page with AcceSS and its original state. Overall, the participants were more satisfied with the simplified version of the website as yielded by AcceSS. Implications for future research are discussed.
