  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 ...

  3. Computer-Supported Problem Based Learning for K-16 Science Education

    SBC: ENKIA CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Not Available We propose a Phase I study to examine the potential for a lightweight carbon thermal management system, for hi-altitude aircraft and space vehicles. Thermal Hyperconducting carbons have demonstrated performance as high as 2000 W/mK. They are in use in some limited heat sink application at.this time, however this effort will look at a systems approach to conduct comprehensive thermal ...

  5. N/A

    SBC: Media Group of CT.            Topic: N/A

    Not Available Virtually every user of launch services is seeking methods to reduce launch costs. A reusable conventional launch vehicle configuration shows the potential to achieve this goal. The LOX/LNG propellant combination shows the potential to enhance both propulsion system reusability and launch system mass-to-orbit capability. This propellant combination also has the performance margins n ...

  6. Smart Automated Reading Assistant (SARA): A Knowledge-Based Authoring Tool for Literacy Instruction

    SBC: Mei Technology Company            Topic: N/A

    Not Available The objective of the proposed effort is to determine the feasibility of squeezing a large schematic or diagram image onto a small physical display using a high-resolution area-of-interest in conjunction with warping of the remaining imagery. The resulting, hybrid image can then be viewed by maintenance personnel as they perform their tasks using portable computers. The specification ...

  7. Inexpensive Multiple-Use Education Communication Network

    SBC: TALKING LIGHTS LLC            Topic: N/A

    Not Available An advanced ceramic matrix composite (CMC) system will be used to develop concepts for a lightweight and economical thermal protection system for hypersonic air vehicles. The concept will be based on COI's oxide-oxide CMC that has been shown to retain its structure properties at extreme temperatures. The low cost manufacturing approach and its inherent resistance to environmental ex ...

  8. CyberSlate: Computer Guided Coaching to Achieve Reading Fluency

    SBC: The Learning Incentive            Topic: N/A

    Not Available The development of advanced communication or electronic warfare systems requires high performance miniaturized microwave filters. Miniaturized high-Q evanescent (EV) is one of the most desirable filters due to its wide stopband and small size, especially for satellite down-converter applications where a few hundred EV filters are used. Currently, EV filters are made using very small ...
