We had a strong representation at ASSETS 2018 in Galway, Ireland- we presented three posters and two full papers.
In pictures, see Dhruv Jain presenting his paper on Augmented Reality Captioning in Mobile Context, Lee Stearns presenting "Design of an Augmented Reality Magnification Aid for Low Vision Users" and Jon Froehlich with his poster "How does Urban Accessibility Change over Time"
Real-time captions are overlaid on top of the user's vision via an HMD
In this prototype, the user can adjust the position, size, and 3D orientation of the caption display
