Touchable Windows Interface for the Visually Impaired
DESCRIPTION (From the Applicant's Abstract): The proposed phase 1 SBIR project
will develop and evaluate a proof of concept prototype of a touchable window
interface designed to enable blind and visually impaired computer users to use
graphical user interfaces such as Windows with greater ease than is currently
possible. Coupled with speech synthesis or a refreshable Braille display, the user
could use the device to execute mouse commands typically done with pull-down
menus, tool bar icons, and dialogue boxes.
PROPOSED COMMERCIAL APPLICATION:
The proposed device will be designed and developed as a commercial computer
interface device to be purchased by blind and visually impaired individuals.
