Original Abstract

Although visually impaired people can access digital information by using computers, usually the content of Internet pages is not fully accessible. The dissemination of information available through the World Wide Web makes universal access more and more important and supports visually impaired people in their everyday life. In this paper we present a new system which serves visually impaired people for browsing and interacting with web pages. We propose a system, which uses translation rules to render web pages upon user requests.
