Axel Schmetzke discusses creating distance learning environments accessible to all users. Even with the creation of the ADA and Section 508, 54 million Americans are underrepresented in colleges and graduated programs. It is believed that advances with technology and the increase in e-learning would serve the disabled community. While it is true that the sight-impaired could use screen readers to access the Internet, it is necessary that web sites be properly formatted for the screen readers to function properly.
Despite the fact that creating educational environments that are accessible to users of all abilities, extensive gaps remain. Discussions within distance learning journals have yet to appreciate and write about the necessity to create accessible learning environments.
This is an extensive article that explains steps for incorporating accessibility into e-learning and the consequences of excluding anyone from education.
