The Internet has created new opportunities to make quality health information more widely available to both researchers and the general public. However, not all that information has been presented in a format accessible to people with disabilities. This accessibility assessment of eight selected Web-based health information resources (PubMed, OVID MEDLINE, MEDLINEplus, CANCERLIT, the Hazardous Substance Data Bank, TOXLINE, and two databases of Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)) evaluates the ease with which these resources can be navigated using adaptive technologies, and provides suggestions for improvement where necessary.
