The visually impaired users encounter difficulties in acquiring information via image transmission, and then some misunderstandings might occur. In this study, recommendation of user interface layout is proposed. And a communication condition for on-line meeting with auditory interface is designed to give visually impaired users indication of speakers’ identification. An experiment was conducted to evaluate how an on-line meeting was affected by the numbers of participants.
