Abstract: One of the major obstacles with current web access solutions for those with physical disabilities is the efficient selection of links and other web page elements. This is especially so for users of single switches. Current solutions simply build a list of the selectable web page elements and use a linear scan to iterate through them, selecting the highlighted link when the user activates an input device. We propose a new method based on incremental searching of the link text to select elements. This approach, paired with well-established switch typing solutions, allows a single switch user to select any element on a web page by typing very few (most often only one) letters.
