How Browser Accessibility can Enhance Safe Driving - Jacobo Aragunde Pérez, Igalia
Feedback form is now closed.
Imaginative use of accessibility features can lead to great enhancements for safe driving when applied to the automotive domain. System accessibility APIs provide a lot of power to tailor user experiences. Applied to the browser, they may be used to fetch content web sites or applications by their structure, object relations, or simply in a linear fashion, and process it in many ways. They may also be used to provide input, regardless of the hardware devices attached to the system. Around these APIs, assistive technologies can build an experience tailored for the needs of specific users. Screen readers allow visually impaired uses to get site contents in spoken form, audible feedback for interactive events and navigation with a minimal set of keys, using gestures or commands... Automation and testing are other areas using them intensively. In this presentation, Jacobo will explain how accessibility APIs and subsystems interact with applications and the ecosystem of assistive technologies, and propose some ideas of their potential in automotive: spoken instead of visual output, remixed contents tailored to specific output devices, even on-the-fly translation would be possible.
