Abstract

We present protocol for first to our knowledge, comprehensive usability test comparing two sensory substitution devices: a novel prototype of Colorophone mobile 1.1 and well established on the visual aid market BrainPort Vision Pro. We designed usability tests combining qualitative and quantitive measures in accordance with ISO 9241-11 standard. The first goal of this research is to test and compare the usability rating of both devices using the System Usability Scale, qualitative interview, and ecological behavioral tasks. The second goal of the current study is to test the performance of using two devices simultaneously and how it influences usability.

Keywords: Colorophone; BrainPort, sensory substitution; usability; wearable device; assistive device; human–computer interaction
