(Blind and Visually Impaired Association Hamburg). (BSVH) and the service company for program and data migration HAVI Solutions. The research focuses on the accessibility of document management systems, enterprise content management systems and industry software at the workplace in small and medium-sized enterprises for people with visual impairments.
