Abstract

This paper reviews the elements on accessibility issues in e-learning for individual with visual impairment. With current approaches to accessibility are related to technical perspective, this paper examined the fundamental elements on technical accessibility. When physical characteristic of visual impairment affecting user task and ability, it is suggested that learning perspective should be defined by their ability and performance in task, rather than looking at technical accessibility only. The limitation in task and ability leads to accessibility issues in learning process for user with visual impairment. This paper proposed the accessibility requirement for user with visual impairment should be defined by combining both issues of technical and learning accessibility that based on user task and ability. Technical accessibility may relate to individual physical impairment, but learning accessibility should focus on user ability to perform task related to cognitive, perceptual and psychomotor.
