Jeffrey Bigham lecture 12/1, DL480 (CS)
Jeffrey Bigham recently started as an assistant professor at the University of Rochester after completing his PhD from the University of Washington (Richard Ladner's group). His research improves web access for the blind. One of his tangible contributions is the WebAnywhere non-visual web browser (
) that provides convenient text-to-speech and speech-to-text browsing. He has also worked on the making visual touch screens (like the iPhone) accessible to the blind. Over the summer, he was named one of the 35 top young innovators by MIT Technology Review.
