Technology increasingly provides opportunities to interact remotely with others. People with cognitive impairment can be excluded from these opportunities when technology is not designed with their needs, preferences, and abilities in mind.
Dual video conferencing in the proposed remote study design. While interacting with a testbed on a smartphone, a blind participant wearing smart glasses communicates with the experimenter through dual video conferencing. Two video streams are being sent to the experimenter: one from the participant’s smart glasses (a pair of Vuzix blade with the camera located on the top right corner) and the other from a laptop camera facing the participant on the same Zoom call.
