Abstract

Com o propósito de reduzir o preconceito, mudar os índices existentes e destacar as habilidades das pessoas com deficiência, este artigo apresenta uma avaliação de ferramentas existentes no mercado, que proveem treinamentos especializados e conexão de pessoas com empresas. A avaliação foi feita sob a perspectiva das heurísticas de usabilidade e das diretrizes internacionais de acessibilidade, para, a partir dos pontos de melhoria encontrados, apresentar uma solução digital que promova a qualificação e a empregabilidade de pessoas com deficiência, baseada em processos de correspondência mútua, nos quais as habilidades comportamentais e técnicas são igualmente importantes.
