Abstract

With tactile paper prototyping user interfaces can be evaluated with blind users in an early design stage. First, we describe two existing paper prototyping methods, visual and haptic paper prototyping, and indicate their limitations for blind users. Subsequently, we present our experiences while preparing, conducting and analysing tests performed using tactile paper prototyping. Based on our experiences, we provide recommendations for this new usability evaluation method.
