Amuomo Nixon [2] | Anino Edward


Abstract: This study focuses on different trends on user interface designs geared towards meeting the special needs requirements, that is, the visually impaired. The study analyzed various user interface designs in place for aiding the visually impaired in interaction with mushrooming technical devices, such as computers, mobile phones, home appliances and other computerized devices. It was observed that, much effort has been made towards making the interaction of visually impaired people with computers, to be more efficient so that they can easily collect, create, manipulate, understand or use any information from device interface designs. The study reviewed different user interface design trends that have tried to meet the needs of the visually impaired. The study found that making allowances for magnification of texts, use of contrast keys, color contrast, font size adjustment, the use of keyboard shortcuts to navigate, use of audio and haptic devices have been explored. Descriptive research design method was used with frequency counts, percentages, means and inferential statistics using SPSS. Age of persons correlated significantly to gender with a mean of 13.71 for males and 14.86 for females
