Deafblind Technology Research Project

Centre of Excellence – Deafblind (CoE – DB)

Partners: Swinburne University 


The Deafblind Technology Research Project has several aims:

  • To evaluate utility and adaptability of technology to support people who are deafblind.

  • To assess and deliver appropriate technologies to people who are deafblind and have personally defined goals.

  • To measure effectiveness of technology and provision process.

The project involves recruiting people with deafblindness (both residential and community participants) and testing their ability to utilise assistive technology, over a period of time.

So far, researchers have found that combining technologies with one another, one-to-one human support and recognising the unique needs and attitudes towards experiences with technology have played a key role in outcomes.
