Collaboration in the study and development of novel mobile and wearable interfaces for blind and visually impaired people

This long-lasting collaboration is developing and evaluating novel solutions to improve access to and through mobile devices to blind and visually impaired people. Particularly, the collaboration has focused in the development of systems and applications that enable blind people to use mobile and wearable devices. The main goal is to deploy interfaces that make mainstream devices accessible to this population. The collaboration leverages the technologic and human-centric backgrounds of LaSIGE researchers and professionals at the foundation (psychologists, technicians, therapists). This colalboration also grants access to a large pool of participants in the user studies, pivotal in human-computer interaction.
