More than one million people worldwide have a recognized disability – yet the majority of websites are not accessible to everyone. PERSPECTIVES aims to create awareness for this topic and illustrate its realizability. The core of the platform is the information visualization of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, which allows users to grasp all guidelines at a glance. The filtering of this visualization also allows them to view only information that is relevant to them. With additional features, such as the filterable checklist and the glossary, the fear of complexity is taken away.
