Abstract

We have developed a pen-based Japanese character input system for the blind person (particularly persons with acquired blindness). This system is composed of a personal computer and a control board with an electronic tablet. The blind person is able to get the screen information by using a voice synthesizer. We have investigated various problems that arise when the blind person edits the document by using this system and solved those problems. Furthermore this system is applied to an electronic mail system for the blind person. From the experimental results, we have confirmed that the proposed pen-based system makes it easy to input Japanese characters for the novice blind user without training.
