Despite the inclusive vision of the OER initiative, the challenges faced by people with disabilities for accessing and using these educational resources are still being addressed. In this work, we present an OER website designed for enhancing the User Experience (UX) of learners with disabilities in the interaction within this website for searching and retrieval of resources according to their needs and preferences. This design is based on a framework previously developed that included the concepts of accessibility, information architecture, and usability as the main aspects for the UX. The personalization defined by a user for a better UX is stored for successive accesses, but it can be changed any moment.
