Student thesis: Master's Thesis


This study aimed to improve web page interfaces based on the problems the physical disabled users had encountered and explored the feasibility of integrating the palm sensing interactive device with the barrier-free web pages so that users with upper limb disabilities could browse the web pages more freely and conveniently There were four phases in this study In phase one a website was established as the sample for research In phase two the website was actually tested by some physically disabled users The method adopted was the usability testing method The purpose of this phase was to allow users to operate the web page interfaces in a more intuitive way through interactions using a motion sensing device In phase three based on the problems encountered by the physically disabled when browsing the web pages solutions to make improvements were proposed and implemented in the new web page design In phase four a standard testing tool was adopted to test the website to find out the problems of the improved website and try to further improve these problems In addition this study also examined the research to verify the accuracy of the research results and proposed some design suggestions as references for future website designers to design barrier-free websites
