In the world there is around 799 million illiterates, when illiterates use a digital interface they are normally restricted by the highly text based interfaces typically used. This limits their ability to navigate and use the functionality seamlessly without reading aids, instead they use a combination of tactics and assistance from literate people. This paper focuses on how voice and avatar faces can improve how an illiterate uses a contact book. The results shows an increase in recall accuracy due to an increase in familiarity within both avatar customization and voice recognition. For testing an interface, a prototype was developed for an Android mobile phone. This contact book application included a way to sort through all contacts by a visual search feature. Within the application avatar customization and voice recognition is the main focus of the concept.
