Abstract

By 2015, Denmark intends to digitize government services. The effect of this transition on populations with disabilities such as the blind is unclear. We collaborated with the Danish Association of the Blind to interview blind and low-vision users and conduct usability studies of Denmark's citizen portal, Borger.dk. We found many accessibility barriers, which we used to make recommendations and deliver a user-friendly metric for assessing webpage accessibility for this population.
