Keywords:Visually impaired people, Mobile application, Usability dimensions, Usability evaluation model.
The usability of the mobile applications is the most important factor in developing, so the key to develop successful mobile applications is usability, especially for users have specific needs such as visually impaired. However, developers do not focus on visually impaired users. Moreover, there are limited studies and usability evaluation models for mobile applications for visually impaired so developers use just a modified usability evaluation methods which are not enough and useful to evaluate mobile applications for visually impaired, or they use general usability evaluation models. Therefore, using these methods or models is difficult for evaluator and not useful for visually impaired users. This study conducts Systematic Literature Review (SLR) to identify usability dimensions that help mobile applications developers and evaluators to evaluate mobile application for users which have moderate and severe visual impairment. The result shows that, six dimensions that have a significant impact on moderate and severe visually impaired users' satisfaction, who use mobile applications. These dimensions namely efficiency, effectiveness, satisfaction, errors, accessibility and understandability.
