Most work on the usability of touchscreen interaction for people with motor impairments has focused on lab studies with relatively few participants and small cross-sections of the population. To develop a richer characterization of use, we turned to a previously untapped source of data: YouTube videos. We 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. We coded the…

Accessibility in context: understanding the truly mobile experience of smartphone users with motor impairments
TLDR
The ways in which smartphones are enabling everyday activities for people with motor impairments are highlighted, particularly in overcoming physical accessibility challenges in the real world and supporting writing and reading.
Understanding the Accessibility of Smartphone Photography for People with Motor Impairments
TLDR
It is found that people with motor impairments encounter many challenges with smartphone photography, resulting in users capturing fewer photographs than they would like, and photograph quality plays a large role in deciding which photographs users share and how often they share.

Critical methods and user generated content: the iPhone on YouTube
TLDR
This paper offers an example study of the initial reception of the iPhone 3G through YouTube, arguing that a multi-methodological approach is necessary to exploit such data and also to address the challenges of next generation Human Computer Interaction (HCI).
Towards accessible touch interfaces
TLDR
This work presents an evaluation performed with 15 tetraplegic people that allowed them to understand the factors limiting user performance within a comprehensive set of interaction techniques (Tapping, Crossing, Exiting and Directional Gesturing) and parameterizations and shows that for each technique, accuracy and precision vary across different areas of the screen and directions.
The Effect of Disability and Approach on Touch Screen Performance during a Number Entry Task
TLDR
An experiment to examine how individuals with varying motor control disabilities perform on a simple number entry task may be used to guide design of touch screen accessibility for individuals with motor control disabled and wheelchair users.
Slide rule: making mobile touch screens accessible to blind people using multi-touch interaction techniques
TLDR
Slide Rule is introduced, a set of audio-based multi-touch interaction techniques that enable blind users to access touch screen applications and shows that Slide Rule was significantly faster than the button-based system, and was preferred by 7 of 10 users.

Barrier pointing: using physical edges to assist target acquisition on mobile device touch screens
TLDR
A new technique for target acquisition called barrier pointing is proposed, which leverages the elevated physical edges surrounding the screen to improve pointing accuracy and shows the importance of providing physical stability by allowing the stylus to press against the screen and its physical edge.
Developing Multimodal Adaptation Algorithm for Mobility Impaired Users by Evaluating Their Hand Strength
TLDR
The scope of the simulator that reflects the effect of impairment on interaction with electronic devices and thus helps designers in developing accessible systems has been extended to multiple pointing devices and the algorithm significantly reduces pointing time for different input modalities.
