Interaction gestures for a wearable device defined by visually impaired children

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

This paper reports results from two workshops organized with children with visual impairments ranging from blindness to low vision. The aim of the workshops was to suggest gestures for the interaction with a small wearable audio-bracelet. Results show a preference for mechanical buttons and touch-based gestures on the device (mainly tapping and sliding), while only one tentative suggestion is made for a gesture made with the device (shaking).
