Hello Marwah,

Your project looks very interesting and I would love to know more about it!
I completely agree with Jim. I have experience recruiting people with
disabilities to test the accessibility of websites. My advice is definitely
to involve people with disabilities in the design process and this, as soon
as possible.
Good luck!
