You are not disabled, you become disabled. This phrase from the disability movement refers to the fact that we need barrier-free environments in everyday life that promote health and quality of life and enable social and economic participation. This also includes the provision of food as one of the foundations of human existence. Thus, as a consumer, the person must be able to obtain information about goods in a self-determined manner and procure them independently. However, due to the text- and image-oriented design, visually impaired people have only difficult access to both the physical goods and the information offers. ARGUS demonstrates how innovative human-technology interaction (MTI) based on speech-based interaction can help visually impaired people to overcome barriers, experience shopping positively, and to shape their lives in a self-determined way, thus maintaining health and improving quality of life.
