Currently, usable security and web accessibility design principles exist separately. Although literature at the intersect of accessibility and security is developing, it is limited in its understanding of how users with vision loss operate the web securely. In this paper, we propose heuristics that fuse the nuances of both fields. With these heuristics, we evaluate 10 websites and uncover several issues that can impede users' ability to abide by common security advice.
