MobileAccessibility is a new approach to providing useful mobile functionality to blind, low-vision, and deaf-blind users. This approach 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. The MobileAccessibility group designs, develops, and evaluates prototype applications that solve various accessibility problems such as navigation, use of public transportation, sign reading, bar code reading, and currency reading.

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

If you are interested in participating in our focus groups, interviews, lab studies, or field studies, contact us here: contact page.

MobileAccessibility is a joint project between the University of Washington and the University of Rochester.
The project is supported by the National Science Foundation, Grant No. IIS-1116051, with additional support from Google and NVIDIA.
