The aligned rank transform for nonparametric factorial analyses using only anova procedures
This work presents the Aligned Rank Transform (ART) for nonparametric factorial data analysis in HCI, and re-examination of some published HCI results exhibits advantages of the ART.
The design of eco-feedback technology
A comparative survey of eco-feedback technology is conducted, including 89 papers from environmental psychology and 44 papers from the HCI and UbiComp literature, to provide an overview of predominant models of proenvironmental behaviors and a summary of key motivation techniques to promote this behavior.
How are Java software developers using the Elipse IDE?
It is hoped this report provides a start in defining which in formation to collect and distribute on an on going basis to help improve Eclipse and other similar platforms and tools.
A comparison of static, adaptive, and adaptable menus
In a controlled lab study with 27 subjects, the measured and perceived efficiency of three menu conditions: static, adaptable and adaptive were compared and the majority of users preferred the adaptable menu overall.
Ephemeral adaptation: the use of gradual onset to improve menu selection performance
We introduce ephemeral adaptation, a new adaptive GUI technique that improves performance by reducing visual search time while maintaining spatial consistency. Ephemeral adaptive interfaces employ
How are lava software developers using the eclipse IDE
popularity among Javo developers, but are they taking full advantage of its features and third-party plug-ins?
The design and evaluation of prototype eco-feedback displays for fixture-level water usage data
This paper performs formative evaluations of two sets of novel eco-feedback displays that take advantage of disaggregated usage data from emerging water sensing systems to elicit reactions about competition, privacy, and integration into domestic space.
Analyzing user-generated youtube videos to understand touchscreen use by people with motor impairments
This work collected and analyzed 187 non-commercial videos uploaded to YouTube that depicted a person with a physical disability interacting with a mainstream mobile touchscreen device and coded the videos along a range of dimensions to characterize the interaction, the challenges encountered, and the adaptations being adopted in daily use.
"Accessibility Came by Accident": Use of Voice-Controlled Intelligent Personal Assistants by People with Disabilities
Examining the accessibility of off-the-shelf IPAs and how users with disabilities are making use of these devices shows that, although some accessibility challenges exist, users with a range of disabilities are using the Amazon Echo, including for unexpected cases such as speech therapy and support for caregivers.
Typing on flat glass: examining ten-finger expert typing patterns on touch surfaces
It is shown that expert typists exhibit spatially consistent key press distributions within an individual, which provides evidence that eyes-free touch-typing may be possible on touch surfaces and points to the role of personalization in such a solution.
