This chapter proposes a new way to improve the cognitive load and construction of e-learning environments making them more usable and accessible using emerging design. This causes a significant improvement in cognitive load. Accessibility within the area of Web applications, is actually present in different laws of many countries, trying that information could be used for everyone. This objective is limited when you are dealing with severe disabilities. An example of this is people with hearing disabilities who have never hear or speak. To solve these problems the authors propose a platform that brings a complete solution to accessibility.

Culture In The Disabilities Field: Deaf People Sociology

…An autobiography, in case such thing does exist, is like asking a rabbit what does it look like when it jumps through a meadow. How is it going to know it? But, on the other hand, in case we want to know something related to the meadow, there is no one in a better situation than the rabbit to tell us, always having in mind we don’t pretend to know those things the rabbit didn’t notice due to its position on a given moment. (Golden, 2005)
