Tag Cloud to Tag Thunder: Towards New Oral and Nonvisual Reading Strategies

Abstract : The Web is a powerful portal to information and knowledge. Visually Impaired people (VIP) daily browse its resources with tools such as screen readers (JAWS, VoiceOver, Tackback, etc.) or additional modules in their browser (FireVox or ChromeVox for example). However, for such users, browsing the web still lacks a way to quickly apprehend the content of a page. Therefore their browsing experience is much less efficient than the one of people without impairments. This article presents tag thunders, a vocal and interactive version of tag clouds. Our concept enables quick preview and shortens access to content. Our propositions use page structure and semantics to create a hierarchy of its summarized content and present the user with choices to navigate within the page. With this concept, we hope to offer VIPs something similar to a “first glance” of a page in order to foster new high level reading strategies in non visual situations.
