Though legislation is increasingly discouraging drivers from holding on to their mobile phones while talking, hands-free devices do not improve driver safety. We offer two design alternatives to improve driver safety in the contexts of voice-based user interfaces and mobile phone conversations in cars' side tones (auditory feedback used in landline phones)(More)
An in-vehicle speech dialog system (SDS) can support visualhaptic interfaces and reduce eyes-off-road time while driving. This work evaluates two SDS that varied according to the degree of natural language understanding afforded by the speech dialog system. In a Wizard of Oz simulation, two alternative SDSs were tested in a driving simulator. The Lane(More)
We propose one possible set of criteria for evaluating software – specifically search engines – according to their usefulness for deliberative democracy. We then describe a user study of the search capabilities of three, existing, online archives (Google Groups, Omgili, or Technorati) of threaded, conversational data. Our study measures the capabilities of(More)
