  • The purpose of this study was to propose information services for people with disabilities in the culture and art complex. As a research method, group interviews were conducted. Data were collected from three different groups of people with physical disabilities, hearing impairments, and visual impairments in order to investigate specific information services for these groups of people. The results of the information services needed were indicated, based on four sections: the center web pages, information desk, orientation area, and information search area. Specifically, the results showed that more active supports would be provided at the information desks for people with hearing impairments and visual impairments as well as facilities for people with physical disabilities. In the orientation area, special equipment would be provided for people with hearing impairments and visual impairments, and exclusive seats for wheelchair users. For further studies, a detailed research about the information behavior for visitors with disabilities in the culture and art complex would be needed.

  • In the rapid growth of cities, road has heavy traffic and many buildings are under constructions. These kinds of environments make more difficulty for a person who is visually handicapped to walk comfortable. To alleviate the problem, we introduce Navigation System to help walking for Visually Impaired Person. It follows, service center give instant real time monitoring to visually impaired person for their convenient by this system. This Navigation System has GPS, Camera, Audio and Wi-Fi(wireless fidelity) available. It means that GPS location and Camera image information can be sent to service center by Wi-Fi network. To be specific, transmitted GPS location information enables service center to figure out the visually impaired person's whereabouts and mark the location on the map. By delivered Camera image information, service center monitors the visually impaired person's view. Also, they can offer live guidance to visually impaired person by equipped Audio with live talking. To sum up, Android based Portable Navigation System is a specialized navigation system that gives practical effect to realize more comfortable walking for visually impaired person.

  • In order to extend the activity range of visually impaired persons, we design and implement a navigation system that supports road information services and points of interest. The proposed navigation system consists of route creation modules and storage modules for visually impaired persons. In particular, the main interface of the navigation system are implemented using TTS(Text-to-Speech) program for sound and braille module that outputs braille with sense of touch. We also use google map APIs that can provide latest map information for the navigation system.

  • Information technology and internet became necessities of life facilitating communication and information access. Physically handicapped people, who cannot access to new Information easily due to economic, technical and physical handicaps, are likely to live with severe disadvantage in the high-speed information society in which information access right is considered as one of the basic human rights. Therefore, It is highly desirable to develop and improve library service programs for visually imparied at public libraries. In this study, the analyse of service activities for the visually unpaired at Hanbat Public Library and the investigation of user's needs and provider's points of view of staff members through individual Interviews were followed by the propositions gor the Improvement of services at local public libraries. And the consrtuction of cooperative networks with proper role-shares among service rooms for visually Imparired In public libraries, special libranes, social welfare organigations and government offices was confrimed to be the most urgent task.

  • 최근 사회적으로 이슈가 되고 있는 소셜 네트워크 서비스 활용하는 시각 장애인의 수가 점차 증가하고 있으나, 시각 장애인들에 대한 배려 및 접근성은 낙제 수준에 머물고 있다. 이는 보편적인 활용성의 측면보다는 일반인만을 대상으로 제작된 것으로 시각장애인이 원활하게 이용하기에 어려움이 존재한다. 본 논문에서는 시각장애인의 SNS 활용을 지원하기 위한 SNS 관리 시스템을 설계하고 구현한다. 제안하는 시스템은 현재 가장 많은 활용도를 보이는 세 개의 SNS의 공통 특성 분석을 통한 통합 포스팅 관리 및 포스팅 공유 기능을 제공하여 개별 관리 도구 개발에서 발생하는 개발 비용을 감소시키는 것이 가능하다. 또한, 수집 데이터를 시각 장애인의 특성을 고려한 인터페이스로 제공함으로써 시각 장애인의 활용성을 극대화 하였다. 뿐만 아니라, 제안하는 시스템은 독립적인 프로그램의 형태로 제공되기 때문에, 기존의 시각 장애인이 보유하고 있는 보조 기기에 탑재하여 활용하는 것이 가능하다.

  • In this paper, we implement the signboard voice guidance service for visually impaired person using virtual beacon. The new location to provide a location-based service can be added easily by using virtual beacons, which are locating by Wi-fi, GPS, and so on, instead of physical beacons, which are locating by physical devices. We provide the voice service for guiding information of the captured signboard for the visually impaired when he arrived at the location registered through the virtual beacon.

  • 과학기술의 발전에도 불구하고, 장애인들이 정보통신 서비스를 이용하기는 힘들다. 특히 이러한 장애인을 대상으로 구현된 시스템은 미미한 실정하며, 그 혜택을 누리기 힘든 실정으로 이러한 문제들이 사회적인 문제로 대두되고 있다. 본 연구에서는 시각장애인을 대상으로 한 전자메일 음성 서비스와 설계 및 구현하여 보았다. 구현된 이 시스템은 안내음성에 다라 사용자의 선택에 의하여 수신된 메일정보를 들을수 있고 POP3를 사용하여 특정서버에 관계없이 메일을 확인할 수 있으며, 대중화 통신매체인 전화를 사용하여 외부에서도 그 내용을 확인할 수 있다. 이러한 시스템은, 사용자가 특별한 소프트웨어의 구입이나 설치가 필요 없는 장점이 있다. 이 시스템은 7bit, 8bit, base64, QP 등의 MIME 디코딩 방법을 지원하며, 구현된 시스템은 청주대학교 POP3 메일서버를 사용하여 성공적으로 테스트가 되었다. 이러한 시스템 개발은 복지시설 차원이나 시각장애인들의 정보통신 서비스를 사용한다는 측면에서도 중요한 의의를 갖는다고 본다.
