  1. 1. Improving roundabouts for cyclists and visually impaired

    Detta är en avhandling från Lunds tekniska högskola, instutionen för teknik och samhälle, trafik och väg

    Författare :Lisa Sakshaug; [2009]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; accessibility; safety; visually impaired; cyclist; roundabout;

    Sammanfattning : Roundabouts are continuing to increase due to their high traffic safety, low delay times and their winning design. However, there are also problems related to roundabouts; the traffic safety for cyclists is unclear or even negative and there are reports of accessibility problems for people with visual impairment.

  2. 2. Design and Evaluation of 3D Multimodal Virtual Environments for Visually Impaired People

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH

    Författare :Ying Ying Huang; Yngve Sundblad; Eva-Lotta Sallnäs; Charlotte Magnusson; [2010]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Multimodal interaction; 3D worlds; Haptics; Audio; Visually impaired users; Collaboration; Navigation; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Spatial information presented visually is not easily accessible to visually impairedusers. Current technologies, such as screen readers, cannot intuitively conveyspatial layout or structure. This lack of overview is an obstacle for a visuallyimpaired user, both when using the computer individually and when collaboratingwith other users. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Servicescapes seen by visually impaired travellers : Time-geography approach to servicescape research

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH

    Författare :Alma Raissova; [2017]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; servicescape; time-geography; constraints; tactics; blind; visually impaired persons; servicescape; tidsgeografi; begränsningar; taktik; blinda; synskadade;

    Sammanfattning : Knowledge gaps remain in the study of servicescapes, since existing research on servicescapes tends to ignore major advances in the understanding of space and time as social phenomena. One aspect that particularly requires further study is how emerging constraints influence customers’ interactions with organized service places. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Haptic Navigation Aids for the Visually Impaired

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH

    Författare :Daniel Innala Ahlmark; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Industriell elektronik; Industrial Electronics;

    Sammanfattning : Assistive technologies have improved the situation in society for visually impaired individuals.The rapid development the last decades have made both work and education much more accessible. Despite this, moving about independently is still a major challenge, one that at worst can lead to isolation and a decreased quality of life. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Education, Labour Market and Incomes for the Deaf/Hearing Impaired and the Blind/Visually Impaired

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : The Swedish Institute for Social Research (SOFI), Stockholm University

    Författare :Richard Baltander; Eskil Wadensjö; Agneta Kruse; [2009]

    Sammanfattning : Essay I: Return to Education for the Deaf/Hearing Impaired and the Blind/Visually Impaired, 1991-2000   Mincer-equations are estimated for the deaf/hearing impaired and the blind/visually impaired. The results show that the estimates of the coefficient for the education variable are lower than for a comparison group, and that for several years it is not statistically significant that education for the blind/visually impaired has a positive effect on labour income.
