In this paper, loopholes of the existing protocols for navigating smart phone applications screen icons and requirements for the design and development of enhanced ones are identified. Enhanced protocols for non-visual smart phone applications screen icons navigation were developed. In the ongoing work, we are developing a Smartphone application using android Operating system that imbeds the developed protocols. After developing the application, we propose to deploy the developed smartphone application and navigate a given smartphones application screen icons and test the efficiency of the developed protocols.
