Abstract [en]

This research thesis presents a study of mobile-enhanced accessibility evaluation. In the first phase we have identified the evaluation methods that enable evaluation of mobile-enhanced accessibility. In the second phase we have performed evaluation of a specific mobile-enhanced accessibility prototype named “Augment” based on some selected evaluation methods that enables evaluation of mobile-enhanced accessibility. Finding methodologies for accessibility evaluation is just as important as early assessment. Therefore, in the last step on the basis of the evaluation results and literature review findings, we have presented an efficient and usable evaluation method that would enable valid and reliable evaluation of mobile-enhanced accessibility. The name of the presented evaluation method is “AccessEva” that is a diary method supported by a software application, which will run on a smart phone with the mobile-based accessibility software. This enables the testers to survey user attitudes, and experiences about the mobile-enhanced accessibility. At the end of this diary method period we suggest that a group discussion will be introduced and conducted together with the participants under the supervision of evaluators.
