Course Overview
Universal design focuses on making web resources compatible
with the widest range of web browsing technologies which can
also easily adapt to the needs and capabilities of users
through the use of web standards. Web standards are all about
the concept of “interoperability”, the ability of people to
access and exchange information on a wide range of computing
technologies and operating systems. The use of universal
design principles makes web resources more accessible to
people with disabilities, which results in all users having
more choices and control over how they view and use web
resources. Users with visual impairments can easily increase
font size using the text scaling features of browsers. People
who want to view two different web pages side by side can
change the widow width of their browser and content re-flows
to fit the size of the window. A PDA user can apply a user
style sheet to view only the headings of a web page to get an
overview of the topics, without having to do endless scrolling
through text on a small screen.
