          Abstract

          I am in the second year of my PhD in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science and my area of research overlaps Information Retrieval and Human-Computer Interaction. In this project, I study the information seeking behaviour of visually impaired searchers and focus on the challenges they face when using online search interfaces. I propose to design and implement an accessible search interface that considers the needs of users of screen readers and also advocate for cognitive load to play an important role in design decisions.
