A Graphical User Interface for the Visually Impaired – an evaluation

David Veal, S. P. Maj

Abstract


The majority of visually impaired blind and deafblind people retain some degree of residual vision. Software called Dynamic Pattern System (DPS) was developed to utilize this residual vision by generating a range of different patterns, colors and shapes unique to each individual’s residual vision – called a pattern set. This pattern set can then be mapped to printable alphanumeric characters. Limited trials with the visually impaired suggested DPS may have value. This paper is a more detailed evaluation of DPS undertaken by a normally sighted person using low vision simulators that mimic different visual handicap conditions.
