  • This talk will discuss recent research conducted by the Human Computer Interaction Research Group at the University of York into developing technologies for visually impaired people and giving them better access to mainstream technologies. I will discuss three very different projects: WebAIR, a project to help web developers understand web accessibility better; OptiNav, an app to help visually impaired people to navigate the “last 10 metres” in unknown environments; and DescribeIT, a crowdsourcing project to describe images in online digital learning resources for blind students.

Helen, many thanks for this visit
