Background

AVoS - Auditory Vocabulary and Spelling Trainer for People with Visual Impairments

Software frequently pre-supposes the users‘ sightedness. For individuals with visual impairments access to such software is often restricted and non-user-friendly. In AVoS, we develop a Computer-Aided Vocabulary Learning (CAVL) tool where the main output channel is auditory and thus especially suitable for visually impaired users. Our key objective is to provide an intelligent and barrier-free online learning environment that facilitates the autonomous study of vocabulary and spelling. To ensure that users‘ needs and desires are met the development follows a user-centered design approach.
