There are many visually impaired people around the world who can only find controls to operate their phones through voice reading, but voice reading is difficult to use in noisy environments, poor privacy, inefficient and disturbing to others.
We pioneered a set of vibrating feedback languages that allow visually impaired to experience the types of UI elements of the interface through the appropriate touch senses, changing the original single way of interaction.
We hope to help more visually impaired touch and understand our touch-screen phone interface naturally , "Just like using a cane," said one of the surveyed volunteers.
