Resumen

Traditional web interfaces often rely on keyboard/mouse input to work. This characteristic forces people with reduced mobility to adapt or do not use the applications at all. This paper proposes a prototype to increase web accessibility for people with reduced mobility. Our prototype proposes an eye gaze based interaction between the user and web browsers displaying a web site (compliant with the web content accessibility guidelines proposed by the World Wide Web Consortium). We implemented a plug-in that adds functionality to allow user navigation, cursor control and text input.
