This project aims to create a guideline for web developers' future use to improve blind users' web navigation efficiency. Web developers and designers are not always compliant with the current web accessibility guidelines. Current guidelines do not have sufficient specificity for developers to accommodate difficulties blind users have when navigating the web. Web design variability compounds these problems. In this sense, when UI is designed with various visual beauties as its primary focus, web accessibility for the blind is compromised. Blind users are relying on Screen Readers technology when they navigate the web. They are currently limited to one modality for surfing the web hearing and now rely on Screen Reader interpretation of web structure, which cannot make a positive contribution to their next web experience. The project aims to explore the way to apply the sense of hearing to make cues that can be accumulated in web user experience for making supplementary guidelines which can be the part of the developer's workflow.
