QA76.A5.2 - Poor Web Site Design Denies Access to Vital Information
Alexandra Andrews, David Bradley, Eileen Pichersky and Sandra Stark
BUT there is a digital divide occurring with this internet revolution. The digital divide between the programmer and the user is more subtle. While the public wants basic information, the web designer is interested in dazzling everyone with their prowess, - i.e., colored backgrounds, flashing banners, fluttering butterflies, This creates problems that results in a denial of access to millions of people. Besides being frustrating, this lack of accessibility also raises a very serious issue when segments of the population are unable to get information for their health needs.
