Severe visual impairment


If you have a severe visual impairment and you cannot see the visual information displayed on the screen you can come up against the following barriers where web pages not been implemented under accessibility criteria:

  • Images, complex graphics, graphic applications, videos and other visual elements that lack an alternative to the visual information (usually textual alternative) and are not accessible to the screen reader you are using.
  • Disorientation for lack of clear headings on pages, for not having a correct semantic structure and for contextual changes without advance warning and so on.
  • Impossibility of proper interaction with the webpage from your keyboard.. Falta de un buen etiquetado en formularios.
  • Lack of proper labelling on forms.

There are operating systems available that include an integrated screen reader, but if this is not your case, you can acquire one of the screen readers on the market.
