Abstract

This paper summarises some of the findings from a web usability study conducted to investigate the impact of multilingualism and partial localisation strategies on the web navigation experience of screen reader users. More specifically, it reports on the language navigation patterns of 10 visually impaired individuals who browsed two multilingual Swiss university web portals. Although results are not conclusive, data gathered could serve as a starting point for discussion in future decision-making processes about how to design inclusive localised websites.
