Using Virtual Reality to Enable Individuals with Severe Visual Disabilities to Read Books

Abstract : In this work, we present a bespoke assistive tool for people with severe visual disabilities. We are able to download text from books and present these books to our users in a virtual reality environment. This gives them specific capabilities to manipulate the text and factors such as brightness, size and contrast, in order for them to gain a comfortable reading experience.
