Abstract

This Project was sponsored by Fidelity Investments Human Interface Design Group to address the issue of website accessibility for blind and low-vision users. We conducted a pre-study to identify accessibility problems on the career website: jobs.fidelity.com. We developed and implemented solutions to increase accessibility for both user groups. Our solutions were tested in a laboratory experiment conducted in the Fidelity usability lab that gathered performance metrics such as task time and completion, and through an online study survey.
