UI is the saddle, the stirrups, and the reigns. UX is the feeling you get being able to ride the horse, and rope your cattle.

Kunz, Andreas M. and Miesenberger, Klaus (2014): Accessibility of Non-verbal Communication - Introduction to the Session. In: Miesenberger, Klaus, Fels, Deborah, Archambault, Dominique, Perfuiz, Petr and Zagler, Wolfgang (eds.) 14th International Conference on Computers Helping People with Special Needs July 9-11, 2014, Paris, France. pp. 205-208. Available online

This Special Thematic Session describes the elements of an IT system that allows for a better integration of blind people in a MindMap brainstorming session together with sighted users. Software components will be introduced that convert the parallel information visualization to a serialized information representation, which will then be output on a special blind user interface using screen reader and Braille display. Moreover, non-verbal communication elements are another important carrier of information, which also need to be captured and displayed to the blind user. Thus, this session also describes the necessary hardware components and the overall setup, which will allow for a more efficient teamwork in such a mixed team.
