Lindsay Grace Presents gReader at ACHI 2009
Participants: Lindsay Grace
EVL MFA graduate student, Lindsay Grace presents his research gReader: A Universally Designed, Device-Independent Email Client at the Second International Conferences on Advances in Computer-Human Interactions (ACHI 09), Cancun, Mexico.
This project proposes a plan for offering access to e-mail that is largely platform independent. gReader is the design of a Text-To-Speech (TTS) application that reads e-mail to users, records the messages in two popular media types for transfer to portable entertainment devices (PET) and portable communications devices (PCD). A user task analysis was conducted on eight users ranging from ages 19 to 34; the prototype succeeded in delivering email content in an easily comprehended manner.
Results of this research will be described and discussed as part of the symposium’s Interaction & Interface Design & Evaluation Track to be held, Thursday, February 5th, 1:45pm - 3:30pm.
Date: February 1, 2009 - February 7, 2009
