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.
