Title:Improving Mobile Phone Accessibility with Adaptive User Interfaces
Author(s):Kane, Shaun K.
Subject(s):Universal access

mobile devices
Abstract:Mobile phones have become an important and ubiquitous tool for people of all ages and abilities. However, mobile phones can often be difficult or impossible to use by people with visual impairments, motor impairments, or other disabilities. Although users with disabilities are sometimes able to overcome these accessibility barriers, it is possible and preferable to design mobile phones that adapt to users with a range of abilities. We are investigating the problems that people with disabilities encounter when using mobile devices, and are developing new techniques to adapt mobile phone user interfaces to a user’s abilities. These techniques may increase the accessibility of mobile phones for all users.
