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.

Available online

Today, research focuses on the accessibility of explicit information for blind users. This gives only partly access to the information flow in brainstorming sessions, since non-verbal communication is not supported. Advances in ICT however allow capturing implicit information like hand gestures as important part of non-verbal communication. Thus, we describe a system that allows integrating blind people into a brainstorming session using a mind map.

In: Ninth Annual ACM Conference on Assistive Technologies 2007. pp. 115-122. Available online

In this paper we describe a software model that we have developed within the framework of the MaWEn project (Mathematical Working Environment). Based on the MathML standard, this model enables collaboration between sighted people and users of Braille. It allows for synchronisation of Braille and graphical views of scientific contents as well as offering improved navigational functions for Braille users, in both reading and editing modes. The UMCL (Universal Maths Conversion Library) is used to support various national Braille Mathematical notations. After presenting the model, its implementation in MaWEn prototypes is described.

This paper addresses the modeling of user-centred interaction paradigms at a fundamental level. Interfacing can be described as defining and specifying connection points for communication. By providing interactive means of relating flows between these connection points, we can achieve a dialogue. A dialogue becomes a Dialog if a sufficient level of understanding both ways is achieved. We consider this to represent the level of accessibility an environment, whether virtual or real, requires. A well balanced design in any information system provides an architecture with built-in accessibility features. To this end, a high level of flexibility and accessibility can be achieved by separating the various entities that are of importance in the communication process. This paper provides an explanation of this approach and an example of its implementation.

We describe the UMA system, a system developed under a multi-institution collaboration for making mathematics universally accessible. The UMA system includes translators that freely inter-convert mathematical documents transcribed in formats used by unsighted individual (Nemeth, Marburg) to those used by sighted individuals (LaTeX, Math-ML, OpenMath) and vice versa. The UMA system also includes notation-independent tools for aural navigation of mathematics. In this paper, we give an overview of the UMA system and the techniques used for realizing it.
