Abstract: Mobile computing devices now make it possible to develop low-cost, portable assistive technology. The current lack of satisfactory technology to aid visually impaired students drives our development of a handheld-based viewer for Visually Impaired Students (v-VIS) designed to assist in note taking. v-VIS is a real-time viewer and recording system for professor's notes written on an electronic blackboard. The interface integrates magnification and high-contrast color schemes, enabling students to view the transcribed information in real-time. However, the large e-blackboard transmitting visual information to a small-screened handheld creates a screen-mapping problem for which two solutions have been designed and compared objectively.
