Speech technology can be used to provide online help to users in situations where visual display of online help is not possible, or has some display-related limitations. Presenting help material in this manner can also complement traditional online help systems. To date, most online help material has been developed with the assumption that the material will(More)
A game controller, and how that controller is supported in a game, can have a significant impact on a player's gaming experience. In recent years there has been an increasing amount of computer game focused HCI research, but the impact of controller-related issues on user experience remains relatively unexplored. In this chapter we highlight the limitations(More)
User assistance, as implemented in most commercial computing applications deployed today, has a number of well documented limitations. Speech technology can be used to complement traditional user assistance techniques and mitigate some of these problems. This paper reports the results from a pilot study conducted on a speech-enabled user assistance system,(More)
There are opportunities for use of voice input to enhance the effectiveness of continuous cursor control in mainstream gaming. This paper describes a program that uses voice input to manipulate the cursor gain parameter within the context of a game. For some use groups the ability to dynamically manipulate this parameter can be important in making games(More)
Non-speech sounds and haptics have an important role in enabling access to user assistance material in ubiquitous computing scenarios. Non-speech sounds and haptics can be used to cue assistance material that is to be presented to users via speech. In this paper, we report on a study that examines user perception of the duration of a pause between a cue(More)
