By Klaus Miesenberger, Deborah Fels, Dominique Archambault, Petr Penaz, Wolfgang Zagler

The two-volume set LNCS 8547 and 8548 constitutes the refereed court cases of the 14th foreign convention on desktops aiding individuals with certain wishes, ICCHP 2014, held in Paris, France, in July 2014. The 132 revised complete papers and fifty five brief papers awarded have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from 362 submissions. The papers integrated within the moment quantity are equipped within the following topical sections: tactile photographs and versions for blind humans and popularity of shapes by way of contact; mobility help and obtainable tourism; clever and assistive environments: ambient assisted residing (AAL); textual content access for available computing; individuals with motor and mobility disabilities: AT and accessibility; assistive expertise: provider and perform; ICT-based studying applied sciences for disabled and non-disabled humans; common studying layout: method; common studying layout: listening to impaired and deaf humans; common studying layout: signal language in schooling; signal language transcription, popularity and iteration; common studying layout: accessibility and AT; differentiation, individualisation and influencing components in ICT-assisted studying for individuals with specified wishes; constructing available instructing and studying fabrics inside of a person focused layout framework and utilizing cellular applied sciences to help people with distinctive wishes in academic environments.

Designing with the Mind in Mind: Simple Guide to Understanding User Interface Design Guidelines (2nd Edition)

During this thoroughly up-to-date and revised variation of Designing with the brain in brain, Jeff Johnson offers you barely enough historical past in perceptual and cognitive psychology that person interface (UI) layout guidance make intuitive experience instead of being only a checklist or principles to follow.

Early UI practitioners have been informed in cognitive psychology, and built UI layout ideas in line with it. yet because the box has developed because the first variation of this e-book, designers input the sector from many disciplines. Practitioners at the present time have sufficient event in UI layout that they've been uncovered to layout ideas, however it is vital that they comprehend the psychology at the back of the principles so one can successfully follow them.

In this new version, you'll locate new chapters on human selection and choice making, hand-eye coordination and a focus, in addition to new examples, figures, and causes all through.

Infotech Student's Book: English for Computer Users

Infotech 3rd version is a complete direction for intermediate point inexperienced persons who must be in a position to use the English of computing for examine and paintings. completely revised and up to date take into consideration the short relocating global of pcs and multimedia, it doesn't, even though, require a consultant wisdom of desktops on both the a part of the scholar or instructor.

The Path of Speech Technologies in Computer-Assisted Language Learning (Routledge Studies in Computer Assisted Language Learning)

This assortment examines the promise and obstacles for computer-assisted language studying of rising speech applied sciences: speech attractiveness, text-to-speech synthesis, and acoustic visualization. utilizing pioneering learn from members established within the US and Europe, this quantity illustrates the makes use of of every expertise for studying languages, the issues entailed of their use, and the suggestions evolving in either know-how and tutorial layout.

Example text

In order to comply with thee necessities of 3D printers, the resulting mesh is extennded by a bottom layer in order to t construct a valid STL model without holes. , to print these m models. Depending on the harrdware capabilities of the consumer 3D printer, seveeral height levels can be realizeed. 5 cm produced by fussed deposition modeling (FDM) using standard polylacttide filament. Fig. 3. 3D printed tactile map with multiple height levels 6 T. Götzelmann and A. , retrieval, filtering and abstraction of arbitrary detail level map segments.

Another publication [15] first introduces different ways for the production of tactile maps and compares three variants of a given model by user tests. The TMAP project [16] provided blind persons of free California maps containing exclusively streets as line drawings (greater zoom level) being partially labeled along the sides of the map, supported by auditive instructions. , line-drawings) including landmark symbols labelled by keys and legend including an evaluation. Towards Automatically Generated Tactile Detail Maps by 3D Printers for Blind Persons 3 An interactive approach has been introduced by Wang et al.

Sensory substitution systems allow to assess the dependence of mental maps on sensory modalities and to use this knowledge to build effective interfaces. Learning maps is crucial to cope with mobility issues: prior knowledge of an unknown environment can modulate navigation in unknown environments [6]. Virtual maps allow tailoring information to specific user needs. Here we study two unsolved issues. First, if it is possible to know why the construction of a map is a success or a failure. Simply asserting if a subject is able or not to build a map is not enough, as it does not allow to adopt tailored counter-measures.
