Accessibility simulations can give an understanding of the effect a disability may have on the way students access online materials. This paper briefly describes the evaluation of a prototype set of accessibility simulations. The purpose of the prototype was to establish the specification for a second, revised version, which would incorporate the simulation into a learning activity that could be used in Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training for academics. The cognitive overload simulation - part of the second application - has been developed and is subsequently described in detail. In conclusion, this paper discusses planned evaluation of this and similar simulations as an awareness raising tool in workshops for academic staff in Higher Education.
