Supporting Cross-Modal Collaboration: Adding a Social Dimension to Accessibility

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNISA,volume 4129)

Abstract

This paper presents a study of cross-modal collaboration, where blind and sighted persons collaboratively solve two different tasks using a prototype that has one auditory and one graphical interface. The results shows the importance of context and the design of tasks for the accessibility of cross-modal collaborative settings, as well as the importance of supporting the participation in a working division of labour.
