Abstract: Human–computer interaction (HCI) researches the design and use of computer technology, focusing particularly on the interfaces between people (users) and computers. HCI is one of the ongoing researches especially for visually impaired people. They introduce the special thematic session “blind and visually impaired people Human computer interaction and access to graphics” represents current research towards solutions for visually impaired and brings together researchers and practitioners. Choosing clothes with complex patterns and colors is a challenging task for visually impaired people. We have matured a camera-based model system that notice clothing patterns in four categories (plaid, striped, pattern less, vertical and irregular etc) and identifies 11 clothing colors. To recognize clothing patterns, we propose a Hough line Transformation for the detection of pattern and canny detection for detection of edges in the clothing pattern. we proposed the CCNY Clothing Pattern dataset and other different pattern datasets to our method. Using various other performances our method is under the study.

Keywords: Human computer interaction, cloth patterns, visually impaired people.
