Using dialog and context in a speech-based interface for an information visualization environment

Kenneth Cox, Rebecca E. Grinter, David Mantilla
2000 Proceedings of the working conference on Advanced visual interfaces - AVI '00  
We describe a speech-based interface to an information visualization (infoVis) system. Users ask natural-language questions about a given data domain.  ...  Users can interact with these views via speech or direct manipulation. If users give incomplete information, our interface guides them in clarifying their questions.  ...  of interaction for exploring data within an infoVis framework.  ...
