When text is not the answer: supporting low-literate deaf online

Doug McNamara
Presently, text is the most common medium of accessible content offered to the Deaf1 community that otherwise would be presented in an audio format if the recipient were not deaf. However, this fails to address the high incidence of low-level literacy within the Deaf community. As news, education and entertainment content are increasingly presented through online, often interactive, channels addressing multiple input modalities including text, a significant portion of the Deaf community has been left...

Developing e-reader application solutions for persons with Multiple Sclerosis

Esti Livingston
People with Multiple Sclerosis may suffer from fatigue, painful muscle spasms, and decreased coordination that may increase the difficulty of simple tasks such as holding a newspaper or turning a page in a book. Although there are many assistive technologies for persons with disabilities available, none are so accessible as iPads and Tablets. I intend to use these available technologies to design and research an e-reader application for persons with disabilities. By utilizing swipe technologies...

Ubiquitous usability: considering user distractibility in mobile interface design decisions

Mike Marchand
The traditional approach to application design that operated effectively for those who interacted with desktop computers must be re-evaluated when approaching design for the mobile environment; the constraints users may encounter must be considered in order to create successful applications. Mobile devices require different sets of physical and mental interactions, in countless settings and under myriad conditions, introducing distractions and accompanying cognitive load effects that traditional approaches cannot mitigate. Through review of existing work and...
