Abstract:

This project develops a multimodal computer graphics visualization tool that is based on an inexpensive consumer electronic product, a wireless haptic accessory device, and visualization software. During Phase I, a prototype is developed and compared against hard-copy embossed print outs and an expensive piezo-electric display. This research is based on the issues faced by the blind and visually impaired in gaining access to electronic graphical information such as charts, plots, and images. Accessibility features such as screen readers make electronic textual information widely accessible; however, the same is not true for graphical information.
