No-Look Notes: Accessible Eyes-Free Multi-touch Text Entry [chapter]

Matthew N. Bonner, Jeremy T. Brudvik, Gregory D. Abowd, W. Keith Edwards
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We have created No-Look Notes, an eyes-free text entry system that uses multi-touch input and audio output. No-Look Notes was implemented on Apple's iPhone platform.  ...  We have performed a within-subjects (n = 10) user study of both No-Look Notes and the text entry component of Apple's VoiceOver, the recently released official accessibility component on the iPhone.  ...  CONCLUSION We introduced No-Look Notes, a system for eyes-free mobile text entry using multi-touch input. No-Look Notes was designed to take advantage of other work on accessibility and text entry.  ...

BrailleTouch: Mobile Texting for the Visually Impaired [chapter]

Brian Frey, Caleb Southern, Mario Romero
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
BrailleTouch is an eyes-free text entry application for mobile devices. Currently, there exist a number of hardware and software solutions for eyes-free text entry.  ...  No-Look-Notes is a soft keyboard for eyes-free texting on a touch screen. The interface divides the screen into eight wedge shapes, as opposed to 26 or more on a QWERTY keyboard.  ...  Kane's paper recognizes the shortcomings of this type of interaction for the visually impaired and mentions that a chorded, multi-touch input technology, like No-Look-Notes or a Braille chorded input system  ...

Augmentative and Alternative Communication: The Future of Text on the Move [chapter]

Anders Sewerin Johansen, John Paulin Hansen
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The current methods available for text entry on small mobile devices suffer from poor performance which presents a potential barrier to acceptance and growth.  ...  Our analysis of mobile text entry indicates that the likely solution lies in aggressive use of language technology which is beyond the capabilities of current mobile devices.  ...  This feature helps to avoid stressing the user by eliminating the so-called "Midas Touch" problem: Everything you look at gets activated.  ...

Vibro-Tactile Enrichment Improves Blind User Interaction with Mobile Touchscreens [chapter]

Maria Claudia Buzzi, Marina Buzzi, Barbara Leporini, Maria Teresa Paratore
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Interaction via mobile devices is a challenge for blind users, who often encounter severe accessibility and usability problems.  ...  A touchscreen has no specific reference points detectable by feel, so a blind user cannot easily understand exactly where (s)he is positioned on the interface nor readily find a specific item/function.  ...  Recently, Bonner at al. developed an accessible eyes-free text entry system that offers multi-touch input and audio output.  ...
