What ʼ s in a Gesture : Exploring the potential of gesture - based interaction for low literacy user groups

  • Published 2012

Abstract

Gesture-based interfaces are seen as effective means of enabling intuitive and natural ways of interaction with technology and thus can potentially be a great interaction technique to combat challenges of technology use in low literacy user groups. However, these interfaces can be effective and intuitive only if anchored in a deep understanding of how humans use gestures to communicate within the social and cultural context of the users. This position paper presents our preliminary ideas on how we could effectively extract gesture vocabulary for the design of gesture-based applications for low literacy user groups, bringing together insights from HCI, semiotics, and cognitive science.
