A CASE STUDY



Adapting mobile phones’ physical device to people
with:


Visual impairment


Hearing impairment


Dexterity impariment



Avoid the stigmatizing effect




2

Large
-
scale survey


which problems/preferences



The product needs to be both stylish and

-
to
-
feel buttons


To small font size on screen and keyboard


Bad luminosity and/or contrast



Hearing imparied people


Videophone is not widespread


Prefer numerical keyboard and predictive
text
-
input system (T9)


Visual and vibrating alerts are necessary

4

RESULTS


Elderly people


Use mobile phones for spoken communication


Need large font size on screen and keyboard


Too small key space


Insufficent audio ring volume

5

DESIGN TRENDS ANALYSIS


Mobile phones are submitted to design trends



They intended to design a mobile phone with a
high simplicity and a moderate innovative design



6 designers gathered a large sample of pictures of
existing mobile phones


Organized them into a semantic map

CONCLUSION


Selected 4 mobile phones which were made into
mock
-
ups


1. mockup: positiv feedback on the asymmetry


2. mockup: minimal buttons, can be used for
navigation



The mock
-
ups do not look like existing products



Limitation; no graphical designer on the team


The study needs analysis and design
spedifications
