Developing eLecture Materials for Hearing Impaired Students and Researchers: Designing Multiple-Video Programs and Usability Assessment
eLecture materials for deaf and hard-of-hearing scholars with sign language (SL) interpretation inevitably include multiple-video content. A usability assessment of such a program was conducted, contrasting presentations with 3 media and 6 media views. The preference of Deaf researchers for SL interpretation to subtitles was confirmed, and the need for different arrangements depending on the needs of users was discovered. A prototype system was developed based on the results.
