I had a wonderful time reflecting on the research I’ve been conducting with collaborators over the last two years last Wednesday. Nothing compares to the energy and insights brought by the bright minds at UW DUB. Slides and video to come soon.
Very excited to help organize a workshop on Inclusive Educational Technologies for People with Visual Impairments with these fine people: Oussama Metatla, Christophe Jouffrais, Jeff Bigham, Stacy Branham, Marcos Serrano, Anja Thieme, Shaun Kane, and Émeline Brulé. Our CfP is coming soon!
Branham, S.M., Abdolrahmani, A., Easley, W., Scheuerman, M., Ronquillo, E., Hurst, A. “‘Is Someone There? Do They Have a Gun?’: How Visual Information About Others Can Improve Personal Safety Management for Blind Individuals.” In Proceedings of the ACM SIGACCESS Conference on Computers & Accessibility (ASSETS ’17), Baltimore, MD, October 30 – November 1, 2017. 10 pages.

Enjoyed sharing my research on assistive technology design with faculty and students at my alma mater on Nov. 17. Go Hokies!
Excited to present our latest paper at ASSETS 2017: “Is Someone There? Do They Have a Gun?” How Visual Information about Others Can Improve Personal Safety Management for Blind Individuals.”
My MS student, Morgan Scheuerman, just earned his first publication acceptance, a CHI 2017 work-in-progress paper titled “Learning the Language: The Importance of Studying Written Directions in Designing Navigational Technologies for the Blind.” So proud!
Our full paper titled “Beyond Accuracy: Examining how Context of Use Impacts Blind Individuals’ Acceptance of Navigation Aid Errors” was accepted to CHI 2017.
