Internet Brwosing, Handicapped, Voice
The role of the Internet in the life of everyone is becoming more and more important. People who usually use the internet are normal people with use of all physical parts of their body. Unfortunately, members of society who are physically handicapped do not get access to this medium as they don’t have the ability to access the internet or use it. The Integrated Browser is a computer application that browses the internet and displays information on screen. It targets handicapped users who have difficulties using a standard keyboard and/or a standard mouse. In addition, this browser, unlike the conventional method, works by responding to voice commands. It is characterized as an economical and humanitarian approach because it is handicap-friendly and is especially helpful to those who cannot use their hands. The Integrated Browser is a state-of-art technology that provides better and faster Internet experience. It is a program that will facilitate and enhance learning of slow or/and handicapped learners
