Abstract

While taxies are considered as an easily accessible form of transportation, for the visually impaired, utilizing them can be a significant challenge. This paper draws a system architecture where the visually impaired use GPS-enabled mobile computing devices to easily reserve and access taxies. As the first step, we try to understand the interface requirements of the target population using a set of interviews conducted over 28 visually impaired participants. Our results show that the smartphone usage rate of our participants is ∼ 60%; thus, smartphone-based applications should not be considered as the \universal platform" for the visually impaired. Results from an extensive set of questions reveal that interaction interfaces in the form of key chains and wrist watches can also be effective for various interactive applications.
