We present VoiceDraw, a voice-driven drawing application for people with motor impairments that provides a way to generate free-form drawings without needing manual interaction. VoiceDraw was designed and built to investigate the potential of the human voice as a modality to bring fluid, continuous direct manipulation interaction to users who lack the use of their hands. VoiceDraw also allows us to study the issues surrounding the design of a user interface optimized for non-speech voice-based… Expand
HANDS-FREE VOICE-DRIVEN DRAWING AND DIAGRAM CREATION METHOD FOR PEOPLE WITH MOTOR IMPAIRMENTS
Many of today's computer applications rely heavily on the use of a mouse, especially those that require fluid manipulations such as drawing or diagramming applications. This reliance on manual inputExpand
Vocal Programming for People with Upper-Body Motor Impairments
TLDR
The study showed that VocalIDE significantly improves the participants' ability to make navigational edits and select text while programming, and evaluated the utility of V vocalIDE with 8 participants who have upper limb motor impairments. Expand
Vocal Telekinesis: towards the development of voice-physical installations
  • S. A. Hashimi
  • Computer Science
  • Universal Access in the Information Society
  • 2008
TLDR
The aim is to expand the scope of interactive media through exploring various voice-physical mappings which will extend beyond the graphical output to include physical feedback such as changes in the size, brightness, speed, direction, and height of real objects. Expand
Voice Games: Investigation Into the Use of Non-speech Voice Input for Making Computer Games More Accessible
TLDR
The hypothesis that non-speech voice input can offer significantly faster discrete input compared to a speech-based input method is validated and a prototype system called the Voice Game Controller is built that augments traditional speech- based input methods with non- speech voice input methods to make computer games originally designed for the keyboard and mouse playable using voice only.

The VoiceBot: a voice controlled robot arm
TLDR
Results show that it is indeed possible for a user to learn to effectively manipulate real-world objects with a robotic arm using only non-verbal voice as a control mechanism. Expand
Voice augmented manipulation: using paralinguistic information to manipulate mobile devices
TLDR
Two experiments verified the effectiveness of the VAM technique and showed that repeated finger gestures significantly decreased compared to current touch-input techniques, suggesting that VAM is useful in supporting user control in a mobile environment. Expand
Vocal Shortcuts for Creative Experts
TLDR
This work built VoiceCuts, a prototype implementation of vocal shortcuts that targets experts' unique needs by handling short and partial commands and leverages document model and application context to disambiguate user utterances. Expand
Voicemoji: Emoji Entry Using Voice for Visually Impaired People
TLDR
Vicemoji is developed, which outputs relevant emojis in response to voice commands, and provides context-sensitive emoji suggestions through speech output and is presented as a feasible solution for voice-based emoji entry. Expand
Longitudinal study of people learning to use continuous voice-based cursor control
We conducted a 2.5 week longitudinal study with five motor impaired (MI) and four non-impaired (NMI) participants, in which they learned to use the Vocal Joystick, a voice-based user interfaceExpand
What can I say?: addressing user experience challenges of a mobile voice user interface for accessibility
TLDR
This paper addresses long standing usability challenges introduced by voice interactions that negatively affect user experience due to difficulty learning and discovering voice commands and offers a set of implications for the design of M-VUIs. Expand

Voice as sound: using non-verbal voice input for interactive control
TLDR
It is suggested that voice-as-sound techniques can enhance traditional voice recognition approach and achieve more direct, immediate interaction by using lower-level features of voice such as pitch and volume. Expand
The Vocal Joystick: A Voice-Based Human-Computer Interface for Individuals with Motor Impairments
TLDR
A novel voice-based human-computer interface designed to enable individuals with motor impairments to use vocal parameters for continuous control tasks, which exploits a large set of continuous acoustic-phonetic parameters like pitch, loudness, vowel quality. Expand
Head pointing and speech control as a hands-free interface to desktop computing
TLDR
The system introduced by this work addresses both goals, i.e., develops and customises existing technical solutions and keeps an eye on the end-user's costs. Expand
In-situ speech visualization in real-time interactive installation and performance
TLDR
The term in-situ speech visualization is coined to describe a variety of augmented-reality techniques by which graphic representations of speech can be made to appear coincident with their apparent point of origination. Expand
The vocal joystick:: evaluation of voice-based cursor control techniques
TLDR
Novice user evaluations show that the Vocal Joystick can be used by people without extensive training, and that it presents a viable alternative to existing speech-based cursor control methods. Expand
EyeDraw: enabling children with severe motor impairments to draw with their eyes
TLDR
The project identifies challenges that are unique to controlling a computer with the eyes, and unique to writing software for children with severe motor impairments. Expand
An Intelligent Interface for Keyboard and Mouse Control -- Providing Full Access to PC Functionality via Speech
TLDR
Experimental results indicate that speech input for alphanumeric data entry is a much more effective modality than existing alternatives for the target user group. Expand
Cursor measures for motion-impaired computer users
TLDR
This paper discusses work that aims to reveal the nature of people with motion-impairments' difficulties through analyses that consider the cursor's path of movement, and introduces new cursor characteristics for motion-impaired users. Expand
Speech-based cursor control: a study of grid-based solutions
TLDR
This study explores the potential of a speech-controlled grid-based cursor control mechanism and confirms that the nine-cursor solution allowed users to select targets of varying size, distance and direction significantly faster than the one-Cursor solution. Expand
Acoustic control of mouse pointer
TLDR
A preliminary user study with four users indicates that the orthogonal control was easier to operate and that the humming was less tiring for the users than whistling. Expand
