The World-Wide-Web (WWW), is a massive collection of information dispersed over the Internet, that is primarily accessed using a graphical web browser such as Netscape or Microsoft Explorer. However for many people and for many applications a graphical web browser is useless and/or inappropriate. In this thesis a prototype of a Non-Visual Web Browser was developed, this developed browser uses speech recognition as input and a speech synthesizer as output and its navigation method is based on document content rather than its layout. An investigation of the developed browser was carried out and the findings from this investigation were discussed. Other features such as auditory clues and spatial layout, were also discussed as factors in the development of an ideal non-visual web browser.
