  1. INVESTIGATION OF AN AUDIO FEEDBACK SYSTEM ALLOWING VISUALLY IMPAIRED ACCESS TO GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACES

    SBC: Atg            Topic: N/A

    THE PROLIFERATION OF GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACES (GUIS) IN PERSONAL COMPUTERS, SUCH AS MICROSOFT WINDOWS AND MACINTOSH, IS A THREAT TO VISUALLY IMPAIRED PERSONS' ABILITY TO USE COMPUTERS BECAUSE GUIS REPRESENT INFORMATION ICONICLY AND SPATIALLY, AS WELL AS TEXTUALLY. THE GUIS VISUAL ORIENTATION MAKES GUIS DIFFICULT FOR THE VISUALLY IMPAIRED TO ACCESS THROUGH TRADITIONAL ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGIES. WE PR ...

  2. THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE POSSIBILITY OF UTILIZING COMMERCIALLY-AVAILABLE LETTER-QUALITY OR DOT-MATRIX PRINTERSFOR BRAILLE OUTPUT WHEN USED WITH A MICROCOMPUTER.

    SBC: Duffy Engineering            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE POSSIBILITY OF UTILIZING COMMERCIALLY-AVAILABLE LETTER-QUALITY OR DOT-MATRIX PRINTERSFOR BRAILLE OUTPUT WHEN USED WITH A MICROCOMPUTER. THE BRAILLE-OUTPUT ENVISIONED WOULD BE GRADE I BRABRAILLE SINCE GRADE II WOULD NORMALLY REQUIRE TRANSCRIPTION BY AN EX AN EXPERIENCED BRAILLIST. THIS CONCEPT IS INTENDED TO PROVIDE AN INEXPENSIVE, AUTOMATED, AND RAPID SYSTEM OF BRAILLE- ...

  4. Ultra-Low Pinhole Simox

    SBC: IBIS TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO EVALUATE THE IMPACT OF CHANNELING OF OXYGEN ON BURIED OXIDE XNTEGRITY IN SIMOX MATERIAL. BURIED OXIDE PINHOLEDENSITY AND CRYSTALLOGRAPHIC ORIENTATION RELATED PATTERNS IN BURIED OXIDE PINHOLE MAPS WILL BE EXPLAINED DEPENDING UPON THE IMPLANT ANGLE. THE METHOD BASED ON THE ELECTROYTIC PLATING OF COPPER WILL BE USED TO OBTAIN THE MAPS OF PINHOLES. THIS WORK WILL IMPROVE KNOWL ...

  5. Space and Time Resolved Measurements of Current and Electron Density Profiles Around High Current Z-Pinches

    SBC: Science Research Laboratory, Inc            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED TO USE A SENSITIVE LASER PROBE BEAM TO MEASURE, VIA BEAM REFRACTION AND FARADAY ROTATION, THE PLASMA DENSITIES AND MAGNETIC FIELDS (HENCE CURRENT PROFILES) AROUND HIGH CURRENT Z-PINCHES. DURING PHASE I, A SIMPLE VERSION OF THE PROPOSED LASER METROLOGY TOOL, USING MANY COMPONENTS ALREADY AVAILABLE AT SRL, WILL BE VALIDATED BY MEASURING THE -0.5 MA CURRENTS (100-300 T MAGNETIC FIELDS) ...
