Voice interactions on mobile phones are most often used to augment or supplement touch based interactions for users' convenience. [...] Key Result Based on our findings we offer a set of implications for the design of M-VUIs.Expand
Accessible Voice Interfaces
TLDR
This workshop will explore recent advances in accessibility and voice interface research, situate voice- based accessibility in prior work and existing theoretical frameworks, discuss open challenges in the design of voice-based systems, and identify opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration to continue research in this field. Expand
"Accessibility Came by Accident": Use of Voice-Controlled Intelligent Personal Assistants by People with Disabilities
TLDR
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. Expand
Investigating the Accessibility of Voice Assistants With Impaired Users: Mixed Methods Study (Preprint)
BACKGROUND Voice assistants allow users to control appliances and functions of a smart home by simply uttering a few words. Such systems hold the potential to significantly help users with motorExpand
“You, Move There!”: Investigating the Impact of Feedback on Voice Control in Virtual Environments
TLDR
It is found that the type of feedback given by agents is critical to user experience, and specifically auditory mechanisms are preferred, allowing users to engage with other modalities seamlessly during interaction. Expand
Investigating the Accessibility of Voice Assistants With Impaired Users: Mixed Methods Study
TLDR
This work investigates whether cognitive and/or linguistic functions could predict user performance in operating an off-the-shelf voice assistant (Google Home) and advances practical indicators to predict the level of accessibility of speech-based interactive systems. Expand
Investigating the usability and user experiences of voice user interface: a case of Google home smart speaker
TLDR
The findings show that the Google Home is usable and user-friendly for users, and shows the potential for international users. Expand
Reading Between the Guidelines: How Commercial Voice Assistant Guidelines Hinder Accessibility for Blind Users
TLDR
A qualitative document review of VAPA design guidelines published by top commercial vendors Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Apple and Alibaba found that guidelines have many commonalities that surface an underlying assumption that V APA interfaces should be modeled after human-human conversation. Expand
Voice+Tactile: Augmenting In-vehicle Voice User Interface with Tactile Touchpad Interaction
TLDR
The Voice+Tactile interactions that augment the VUI via multi-touch inputs and high-resolution tactile outputs improved the V UI efficiency and its user experiences without incurring significant additional distraction overhead on driving. Expand
Designing Voice Interfaces: Back to the (Curriculum) Basics
TLDR
It is advocated for the updating of HCI curricula to incorporate VUI design, and for the development of VUI-specific pedagogical artifacts to be included in new curricula. Expand
Enhancing Interactions for In-Car Voice User Interface with Gestural Input on the Steering Wheel
TLDR
Gestural input on the steering wheel is explored to improve the interaction efficiency of VUI and reduced workload without a significant reduction in driving distraction than just using VUI. Expand

Freedom to roam: a study of mobile device adoption and accessibility for people with visual and motor disabilities
TLDR
This formative study examines how people with visual and motor disabilities select, adapt, and use mobile devices in their daily lives, and provides guidelines for more accessible and empowering mobile device design. Expand
Voice over Workplace (VoWP): voice navigation in a complex business GUI
TLDR
This paper presents two user studies on a series of interface designs to support voice navigation within a complex business GUI, and discusses the findings as they relate to efficiency and ambiguity handling. Expand
Voicedraw: a hands-free voice-driven drawing application for people with motor impairments
TLDR
VoiceDraw is presented, a voice-driven drawing application for people with motor impairments that provides a way to generate free-form drawings without needing manual interaction and offers insights for mapping human voice to continuous control. Expand
JustSpeak: enabling universal voice control on Android
TLDR
JustSpeak enables system wide voice control on Android that can accommodate any application and provides more efficient and natural interaction with support of multiple voice commands in the same utterance. Expand
The Future of Mobile Device Research in HCI
TLDR
Four trends are presented that point toward the increasing importance of mobile device research in HumanComputer Interaction (HCI) and indicate a future in which the gap between the user and the desktop is even wider than today. Expand
User experience of speech controlled media center for physically disabled users
TLDR
A multimodal media center interface based on speech that provides full speech control with a hands-free speech recognition input method for people with physical disabilities and the resulting interface was designed following human-centered principles. Expand
A comparison of speech and mouse/keyboard GUI navigation
TLDR
Two speaker-independent navigation systems (discrete and continuous) are compared, measuring accuracy, perceived performance, task time, and perceived system usability, and the survey results showed that participants’ acceptance of the system was quite sensitive to small changes in system response time. Expand
A comparison of voice controlled and mouse controlled web browsing
TLDR
The study shows that voice control adds approximately 50% to the performance time for certain types of tasks and subjective satisfaction measures indicate that for voice browsing, textual links are preferable to numbered links. Expand
Use of Speech Technology in Real Life Environment
TLDR
The results suggest that user requirements for speech-based interactions have evolved as the technology matured to include better support for formatting text documents as well as more effective support for other applications. Expand
The limits of speech recognition
TLDR
By understanding the cognitive processes surrounding human “acoustic memory” and processing, interface designers may be able to integrate speech more effectively and guide users more successfully. Expand
