In this paper we present an initial study of computer supported collaboration between visually impaired users based around the interactive browsing and manipulation of simple graphs. We specifically looked at supporting awareness of others activities and interaction between participants. We found that shared audio and haptic locating tools, to allow users to find each other, are useful. However further work is required to determine the general applicability of our findings.
