  1. 1. Smart Composite Human-Computer Interfaces ARTEMIS Project 100249 http://www.smarcos-project.eu Authors: Sarah Chiti (Intecs s.p.a.) SMARCOS VISUALLY IMPAIRED ANDROID APLLICATION The Visually Impaired Application is a SMARCOS project pilot within the area of Complex Systems and aims at investigating the interaction with touchscreen devices by users with visual impairments. To this end, we chose Android-powered devices and we developed a prototype application to implement some targeted functionalities, which allowed us to analyse and evaluate how well the blind user is able to interact and work with a smartphone • Android application for smartphone with touch screen technology • In order to allow blind users to interact with the touch screens • Focus on: the lack of hardware keys and tactile references can be very complex for blind people interacting with touch screens • Working together with 20 users, we identified: • the appropriate gestures to adopt for the screen in order to navigate and access information: scrolling, flicking, tapping, double tapping • the resulting feedback: vibration, vocal messages, short sounds SponsorsPartners SMARCOS project (100249) is partially financed by ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking, the Spanish Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Trade (MITYC), the Ministry of Economic Affairs of the Netherlands (Agentschap NL) and the Flemish government Agency for Innovation by Science and Technology (IWT) under contract number 090787.
