Modelling of users' capabilities

conference contribution
posted on 07.04.2009 by Matthew T. Atkinson, Colin Machin
Modern computer systems present great barriers to potential users who are too far away from being the “average user” for which they were designed. This means users that have unusual or limited devices (such as small-screen PDAs) and users with disabilities are quite likely to encounter great difficulty when trying to use certain mainstream systems. This paper presents a technique for incorporating personalisation into information retrieval systems in a low-level way. The technique—Modelling of Users’ Capabilities—is described, as is a proof-of-concept test that was carried out. Conclusions are drawn from this test and ongoing work is discussed.
