P07306: Audible Memo Device

Updated Code for Alex

This project is a lightweight clipboard-size device that will easily allow a blind person to record, and play back, at least 64 audible memoranda messages with categories such as Appointments, Special Dates, To-Do List, and etc. The user interface must be simple and easily navigated by sense of touch. The design must assume that the user suffers some degree of neuropathy in the fingertips.

Mission Statement

The mission of this project is to develop a lightweight, clipboard-size device that will easily allow a blind person to record, and play back, at least 64 audible memoranda.

The interface must be simple, and easily navigated by sense of touch. The design must assume that the user suffers some degree of neuropathy in the fingertips.

There must be at least sixty seconds of available record-time for each memo.

For example, the face of the device could be organized as a grid of 20 boxes, demarcated by raised lines or ridges that are easily felt. Sixteen of the boxes could be numbered memos, and the other four boxes could select among categories of memo (such as Appointments, Special Dates, To-Do List, etc.). By selecting a category, the sixteen memos in that category would be accessible.

Project Readiness Package

The Project Readiness Page defines customer needs and expectations, project deliverables (including time frame), budget, and personnel / organizations affiliated with the project. It will serve as the primary source of information for students necessary during Phase 0 (Planning) to develop a SD I plan and schedule including specific deliverables and due dates. The Project Readiness Package will also support Faculty evaluation of project suitability in terms of depth, scope, and student / faculty resources by discipline.
