CAPKOM: A Wizard to Facilitate the Web Experience of Users with Cognitive Disabilities
Sprache des Titels:
Adaptable and adaptive user interface interfaces for both, software and (mobile) web application are an extensively researched area for mainstream users as well as users with disabilities. The "sticking point" in developing adaptable and adaptive user interfaces for people with cognitive disability is the lack of appropriate, reliable and stable recommendations, guidelines, techniques and tools as well as evaluation methods and techniques, especially for people with cognitive disabilities (e.g. persons with unknown reading capabilities using a web site or service), measuring how well user interaction paradigms and content is understood and used. In this paper, we present initial work carried out in this field within the project CAPKOM that aims at developing a "Wizard" that supports the definition of requirements for people with cognitive disabilities when accessing the web, means to evaluate necessary adaptations to ease reading and understanding, compile individual user profiles out of it and hand them to the browser to adapt websites following the gained profile. Within the presented project CAPKOM, the Wizard works with a specifically designed website (online-atelier.com) but can be adapted and implemented to other use cases to allow profile based adaptations and the definition of support functionalities when accessing mainstream web pages.
