AbstractOf all human senses, vision is the primary source of information about the outside world. When humans lose a sense of touch or a sense of hearing, they can still communicate with each other using vision. The same is for computers. When information cannot be entered into computer using hands or speech, vision could provide a solution, if only computers can see. Based on our recent work on designing a vision-based software to enable people with disabilities to work with a computer, we summarize the main problems related to the task and indicate the directions for the design of computers which can see with a specific task in hand of seeing a computer user.
