Abstract

Modern cell phones are becoming increasingly complex, as more and more features are added to every new generation. These complex user interfaces can make even placing a call difficult for those with disabilities. This presentation demonstrates a fully-functional version of PhotoTacs, an easy-to-use image-based phone book, designed specifically for those with cognitive disabilities and visual impairments.
