Abstract

While clothing is one of the requisites of human life, the visually impaired have limitations in their shopping and need to rely on acquaintances or shop assistants to choose and purchase clothes. Given that fashion is a means of self-expression, their independency of expressing themselves has been limited. In this work, we sought to provide technological solutions for visually impaired people, to help them distinguish the color of clothes while shopping. After conducting exploratory user studies, we derived design requirements and developed a voice service mobile application which guides them through recognizing and choosing colors of clothing.
