Cross-modal collaborative interaction between visually-impaired and sighted users in the workplace
MetadataShow full item record
We present a detailed description of the design and integration of auditory and haptic displays in a collaborative diagram editing tool to allow simultaneous visual and non-visual interaction. The tool was deployed in various workplaces where visually-impaired and sighted coworkers access and edit diagrams as part of their daily jobs. We use our initial observations and analyses of the recorded interactions to outline preliminary design recommendations for supporting cross-modal collaboration in the workplace.
