The key role of touch in non-visual mobile interaction

João Benedito, Tiago Guerreiro, Hugo Nicolau, Daniel Gonçalves
2010 Proceedings of the 12th international conference on Human computer interaction with mobile devices and services - MobileHCI '10  
Mobile devices are designed mostly to fit users with no particular disability.  ...  To empower these users, a deeper understanding of their capabilities and how they relate with technology is mandatory.  ...  CONCLUSION The sense of touch is of extreme relevance for a blind user. Even mobile solutions for the blind overlook this evidence.  ...

Imaginary interfaces

Sean Gustafson
2012 Proceedings of the 2012 ACM annual conference extended abstracts on Human Factors in Computing Systems Extended Abstracts - CHI EA '12  
Screenless mobile devices achieve maximum mobility, but at the expense of the visual feedback that is generally assumed to be necessary for spatial interaction.  ...  With Imaginary Interfaces we re-enable spatial interaction on screenless devices. Users point and draw in the empty space in front of them or on the palm of their hands.  ...  Related Work Highly mobile devices have supplied visual feedback by utilizing projectors.  ...

From science to technology: Orientation and mobility in blind children and adults

Luigi F. Cuturi, Elena Aggius-Vella, Claudio Campus, Alberto Parmiggiani, Monica Gori
2016 Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews  
Here we review the neuroscientific studies on orientation and mobility in visually impaired adults and children and present the technological devices developed so far to improve locomotion skills.  ...  However, despite the presence of many devices, user acceptance is low. Not only are visually impaired adults not using these devices but they are also too complex for children.  ...  Acknowledgement We thank Giulia Cappagli and anonymous reviewers for insightful comments on the manuscript. This research has been supported by the European ABBI project (FP7-ICT 611452).  ...

Blind People and Mobile Keypads: Accounting for Individual Differences [chapter]

Tiago Guerreiro, João Oliveira, João Benedito, Hugo Nicolau, Joaquim Jorge, Daniel Gonçalves
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Regardless, all are presented with the same methods ignoring their capabilities and needs. Interaction with mobile devices is highly visually demanding which widens the gap between blind people.  ...  Results show that different capability levels have significant impact on user performance and that this impact is related with the device and its demands.  ...  The absence of such an important and integrating sense as vision, in the presence of so demanding interfaces as are the ones in current mobile devices, justifies it.  ...

Tiago Guerreiro, Joaquim Jorge, Daniel Gonçalves
2010 Proceedings of the 28th Annual European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics - ECCE '10  
Empirical studies are required to dissect the impact of each characteristic in mobile blind users' performance.  ...  Findings/Design -Results suggest that peripheral sensitivity, spatial ability, blindness onset age, age, intelligence and memory are the characteristics affecting user capabilities the most.  ...  We would like to thank the participants in the study for their availability and Hugo Nicolau for his suggestions.  ...
