Havik, Else M.; Kooijman, Aart C.; Steyvers, Frank J. J. M.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v105 n10 p624-637 Oct-Nov 2011
The effectiveness of different types of verbal information provided by electronic travel aids was studied in a real-life setting. Assessments included wayfinding performance and the preferences of 24 visually impaired users. The participants preferred a combination of route information and environmental information, even though this information did not always result in their optimal wayfinding performance. (Contains 1 table and 5 figures.)
