Accessible Lab Instruments for Visually-Impaired People: Developing Non-Visual Displays for a Digital Multimeter

Supervisor: Dr Faustina Hwang

School: Systems Engineering
Department: School of Systems Engineering, Systems Engineering

Multimeters used in electronics work typically provide readings only through visual displays. This project involves displaying the serial output from a digital multimeter into forms that are more accessible to visually-impaired students.
