Facilitating Accessibility and Digital Inclusion Using Gaze-aware Wearable Computing


Gaze interaction has been helping people with physical disabilities for many years but its use is still limited, in part because it has been designed for desktop platforms. In this paper we discuss how gaze-aware wearable computing can be used to create new applications that can significantly enhance the quality of life of people with disabilities, including the elderly, and also be used to promote digital inclusion for illiterate people.
