BOVINE Low Vision Browser

BOVINE is Macintosh browser for persons low vision.

People with disabilities and in particular people with low vision, face significant difficulties in gaining access to computers and Internet-related technologies. One significant factor that has a profound affect on this issue is the effectiveness of the mainstream web interface.

In order to address this issue, the Association for the Blind of Western Australia and Curtin University of Technology applied to the auDA Foundation for a grant to create an accessible web browser specifically for people with low vision. A grant was provided over a 12 month period to employ a researcher/interface designer to determine the needs of people with low vision, and a software developer/programmer to create the prototype.
