Abstract

The purpose of this study was to create an accessible website for a non-profit
organization called Activity4All. This study was done in collaboration with Professor Kevin Taylor and two students from the Kinesiology department.

The website has physiology and nutritional information for individuals with
disabilities including: Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis, Dysautonomia, and Joint Hypermobility Syndrome. It also includes instructional workout videos that individuals can do at home.

This study includes research about website accessibility and guidelines provided by the World Wide Web Consortium. Checklists were created from research and interviews in order to determine whether or not the website is accessible. Questionnaires were distributed and individuals were asked to rate the website on ease of use.

At the point of this publishing, the URL for this website is to be determined by
Cal Poly. It is currently hosted at: http://www.calpoly.edu/~dmpham and will continue to be modified by other students.
