PhD Studentship opportunity
Industrial CASE PhD Studentship in Non-Visual Displays for Connected
A 3.5 year studentship is being offered jointly by BBC R&D and the
University of York, UK, to start no later than 30th September 2012. The
closing date for applications is 30th June 2012.
As the content provided by broadcasters becomes more diverse and more
dependent on interactivity, visually-impaired users are increasingly
restricted by the very heavy dependence of TV on visual interfaces, such
as the electronic programme guide, Red Button services and set-top box
menus. The aim of this research is to develop an auditory interface which
improves accessibility to TV services for people who cannot use a visual
display and which enhances interaction for people who can.
