Wearable computers can certainly support audio-only presentation of information; a visual interface need not be present for effective user interaction. A system for wearable audio navigation (SWAN) is being developed to serve as a navigation and orientation aid for persons temporarily or permanently visually impaired. SWAN is a wearable computer consisting of audio-only output and tactile input via a handheld interface. SWAN aids a user in safe pedestrian navigation and includes the ability for… CONTINUE READING
