Adaptive Action Prompting: A Complementary Aid to Support Task-Oriented Interaction in Explorative User Interfaces
Adaptive action prompting supports users by suggesting how to continue with the interaction. A small number of continuously updated action prompts are offered in addition to the regular menu interface of an application. Users can use these prompts either occasionally in trouble situations or for a sequence of system-guided action selections.The suggestions are based on models of the application, context, and user. According prompting strategies are automatically evaluated and can optionally be controlled by the user. Multimodal user interfaces provide further perspectives for adaptive prompting.
