Towards accessible interactions with pervasive interfaces, based on human capabilities
conference contributionposted on 2010-07-20, 09:10 authored by Matthew T. Atkinson, Yunqiu Li, Colin Machin, David Sloan
We draw on the literature, established standards and practices, contemporary funded projects and ongoing proof-of-concept work to argue for accessibility advocates to capitalise on the current paradigm shift towards ubiquitous, distributed and collaborative information systems. We discuss the contemporary interaction trends and accessibility challenges that give rise to our proposal; describe and provide an argument for capability-based development over the current, more device- focused, approach and document ongoing proof-of-concept and funded development work in this area.
