Editor's Notes

  1. Hi, my name is Kathryn Ringland and I’m from Brush Prairie, WA. I study computer science at Washington State University Vancouver. I’m here at UMBC as a Distributed Research Experiences for Undergraduates student. This summer I have been working in the Human-Centered Computing Lab in the Information Systems department. My project stemmed from the research of Michele Burton and mentor Dr. Amy Hurst.
  2. How would you choose what you are wearing if you can’t see it? [CLICK] 285 million people worldwide are considered visually impaired. Visual impairment includes those who are considered to have low vision and those that are blind.
  3. Clothing is how we express who we are. For instance, I want to broadcast to the world that I am a nerd- so I wear shirts with math puns or 20-sided dice on them. So how would a visually impaired person be able to broadcast who they are? As a visually impaired person one solution is wear clothes that are all the same color so there would never be any coordination issues. However, this has its own cultural implications- wearing all black or all white, for instance, signifies mourning in some cultures. It is also very limiting being able to only wear one color.
  4. There is a lot more to a piece of clothing than just knowing its color. [CLICK] Washing instructions tell you if a garment should only be dry cleaned or what temperature water to wash it on. [CLICK] The fiber content can be really important too. Polyester would not be good to wear on a hot day, while wool is good for a winter day. Or if one is allergic to wool, it would be good to know about the wool content. [CLICK] Also being able to categorize clothing by active, casual, business, or formal, would be useful for planning outfits for particular outings. [CLICK] It would also be useful to be able to take note when a clothing item gets a stain or is beginning to fade over time.
  5. There are ways that the visually impaired currently keep track of their wardrobe. [CLICK] They can remember specifically where everything is in their closet. [CLICK] They can use safety pins and buttons on the inside of their clothes to indicate different things about the garment. One safety might mean casual while two chained together might mean formal. [CLICK] Specialty braille tags can be bought to sew into clothing. These are washable and the user writes the braille on themselves. [CLICK] There are also high-tech device that will scan fabric and tell you what color it is. While this is helpful for telling the general color of a garment, it doesn’t read writing or distinguish specific patterns on the clothes.
  6. [CLICK] Embedding safety pins or buttons into the clothing items is one way of tagging the clothes. [CLICK] These clothing tags can be physical shapes that can be felt, braille tags that can be read, or [CLICK] more high-tech tags that can be read by a smartphone. Using a tagging system would allow the visually impaired user to live more independently without having to rely on others to tell them if their clothes matched or what was written on their shirt.I would now like to show you a short video I created describing the tagging systems I built this summer. I built both low- and high-tech systems. The systems include buttons, braille id tags, qr codes, and rfid tags. These systems will be tested visually impaired users to help develop a more useful tagging system than what is already available.
  7. I’d like to thank the DREU program for this great opportunity. And to Dr. Amy Hurst for mentoring me this summer. Thanks!
