MobileAccessibility is a research project with the goal of designing, building, and evaluating useful mobile functionality to blind, low-vision, and deaf-blind users. The project leverages the input sensors (GPS, camera, touch screen, microphone, compass, accelerometer, gyroscope, speech) with output modes (screen, speech, sound, vibration) and network services that modern smartphones to create inexpensive applications that solve accessibility problems. Researchers on the project develop and evaluate prototype applications that solve various accessibility problems such as text entry, navigation, use of public transportation, and access to educational materials.

For more information about the applications we develop, see the projects page.
