Spending time in outdoor nature is beneficial for improving physical and mental wellbeing. However, despite the advancements in mobile technologies and the rise in physical health tracking apps and devices, people with visual impairments (VIPs) spend less time outdoors. This thesis explores the use of technology in mediating engagement of VIPs with outdoor nature. Through the use of qualitative research methods, an in-depth understanding of the experiences of VIPs in open natural spaces will be developed. These will inform the framing of the design of prototypes of technologies to encourage exploration and engagement with nature for VIPs to be developed through participatory design methods to develop.
