Abstract [sv]

Artikeln introducerar tanken att platsberoende ubika spel kan användas för att göra mobilitetsträning för synskadade barn roligare. Vi beskriver en användarcentrerad utvecklingsprocess som har utförts i samarbete både med synskadade barn och rehabiliteringspersonal. Vi presenterar ett nytt spelkoncept som kombinerar platsberoende spel, ljudspår, och gestbaserad interaktion. Vi rapporterar ochdiskuterar erfarenheterna från utvecklingsarbetet och föreslår riktlinjer för design för denna typ av spel.

Abstract [en]

This paper introduces the idea that location based pervasive games can be used to make mobility training for visually impaired children more fun. The user centred development process which has been carried out in collaboration with both visually impaired children and rehabilitation staff is described and we present a novel game concept which combines locative play, sound traces and a physical catch movement. We report and discuss results of user tests and summarize our experience in a set of tentative development and design guidelines for this type of game.
