Accessible Event Guide
Modern Smartphones provide great opportunities for the Visually Impaired to navigate independently via GPS or WLAN triangulation, accelerometers, text to speech etc. Based on an existing framework, a guide should be implemented, providing location based access to information of importance to event participants: Where am I, where are presentation rooms and other facilities (e.g. exhibition, registration, toilette, …), what’s going on in a room, who is speaking, slides in use, … simply by moving around, the information provided is changing. By manipuating the phone in a certain direction, the user receives information on events in close proximity. The user can also browse the programme, select an activity or choose a facility and get directions how to find it. The system should be available for all event participants including those with disabilities.

Johannes Kepler University

Authors: David Thaller, Sebastian Huber
Scannable Matrix for Keyboard and Commanding on Android Platform
People with motor disabilities might need a scanable interface due to the use of only single switch tools as AT. Different solutions for scanable interfaces and on screen keyboards do exist, but none (to our knowledge) on the Android platform.
The goal of the project is to implement a flexible and adaptable matrix based interface allowing the integration of keys and/or commands (e.g. calling applications) into a scanable environment. An editor should support the definition and layout of the matrix and allow hirachical arrangements (e.g. a button leads to a sub-matrix). The scanning speed should be adaptable. Keystrokes activated should be sent to a predefined CIM protocol (detailed information will be provided) which will handle the logic associated with the keystrokes.

Project:Possibility - Winner Announcment

The Project:Possibility Winner will be announced during the plenary Session on Thursday, July 12th 2012 (11:00-12:30)
