dc.description.abstractThe use of the mouse to allow interaction via gestures has attracted much interest recently and the popular FIREFOX web browser has been enhanced by an extension supporting mouse gestures. These gestures reveal an interaction problem: feedback is limited (often only a terse message in the browser's status bar) and navigation errors easily result when the user unknowingly executes a gesture when trying to accomplish some other task (e.g. copying text from a web page). This paper describes an attempt to improve the interaction experience by adding auditory cues to inform the user about the progress and progression of gestural commands. FIREFOX was chosen as it has an open extension architecture that is easily modified. Preliminary trials indicate increased user satisfaction and comprehension when using auditory-enhanced gestures over the non-enhanced gestures.en_US
