A case study on the planned and actual use of auditory feeback and audio cues in the realization of a personal virtual assistant
In the following paper, the concept of a Personal Virtual Assistant (PVA) is developed and a collection of user interface problems are enumerated and explained. For each of these areas, this paper discusses how audio feedback was successfully (and sometimes unsuccessfully) used, often with supporting examples. The PVA product discussed is a third generation product and is being sold and adopted in the marketplace Without the benefit of audio feedback and audio cues it is believed that its success would not have been possible. The purpose of this paper is to give the background and context of a workshop demonstration to be held at the conference.
