Accessibility of Co-Located Meetings
Sprache des Titels:
Computer Helping People with Special Needs
Non-verbal communication is an important carrier of infor-mation. Even though the spoken word can be heard by blind and visually impaired persons, up to 60% of the overall information still remains inac-cessibly to them due to its visual character . However, there is a wide spectrum of non-verbal communication elements, and not all of them are of the same importance. In particular for group meetings, facial ex-pressions and pointing gestures are relevant, which need to be captured, interpreted and output to the blind and visually impaired person. This session first gives a systematic approach to gather the accessibility requirements for blind and visually impaired persons, from which two typical requirements are selected and discussed in more detail. Here, solutions for capturing and interpreting are provided, and finally the session introduces a concept for accessible user interfaces.
