Abstract

This paper addresses the problem of computer-aided drawing for the visually impaired without using special purpose external devices. We introduce the Integrated Communication 2 Draw (IC2D) system, which has a user interface that enables navigation and drawing on the screen using audio feedback. Navigation and point selection are done via a new recursive scheme based on the layout of the telephone keypad.
