Abstract
Flying is a stressful and demanding task for many passengers, where airlines
are always in the search for new technologies and methods to make the expe-
rience more comfortable and stimulating.
In this thesis, we have evaluated accessibility support within
in-flight-entertainment systems available in the market today. The focus has

though, the fact that the haptic feedback in large extent became unnoticed be-
cause of the high cognitive load from the text-to-speech information had great
impact on the final result. Another important learning is how the digital tools
within accessibility has improved and can enable, an otherwise impossible in-
teraction, when implemented correctly. (Less)
