Seeing UI: Improving Accessibility through Open-Source Data

There is a disconnect between people with disabilities, web-designers, and software engineers, and we have the opportunity and the dedicated time to help bridge this gap. The goal of this project is to validate that AI/ML technology can be used to identify UI elements and create a solution for accessibility challenges determined by the lived experiences of our users. We aim to present a comprehensive roadmap with prioritized scenarios and project direction to UT Austin for creation of an open-source dataset by the end of the academic year.
