Is It Possible to Predict the Manual Web Accessibility Result Using the Automatic Result? [chapter]

Carlos Casado Martínez, Loïc Martínez-Normand, Morten Goodwin Olsen
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
He have performed both manual and automatic evaluations of the accessibility of web pages of two sites and we have compared the results.  ...  The question is: to what extent the results from automatic evaluation of a web site and individual web pages can be used as an approximation for manual results?  ...  We applied all 141 of the UWEM tests manually and 23 of the tests automatically on 30 web pages from two web sites. In our research we found that test descriptions in UWEM where unclear.  ...

Mobile Findex: Facilitating Information Access in Mobile Web Search with Automatic Result Clustering

Tomi Heimonen
2008 Advances in Human-Computer Interaction  
We present Mobile Findex, a mobile search user interface that uses automatically computed result clusters to provide the user with an overview of the result set.  ...  Designing an effective mobile search user interface is challenging, as interacting with the results is often complicated by the lack of available screen space and limited interaction methods.  ...  Previous work by Mika Käki on the Findex clustering engine was essential in enabling this research, and we owe him a great debt of gratitude.  ...

The effects of automatic speech recognition quality on human transcription latency

Yashesh Gaur, Walter S. Lasecki, Florian Metze, Jeffrey P. Bigham
2016 Proceedings of the 13th Web for All Conference on - W4A '16  
Transcription makes speech accessible to deaf and hard of hearing people.  ...  Manual conversion can require more than 5 times the original audio time, which also introduces significant latency.  ...  This research was supported by National Science Foundation awards #IIS-1218209 and #IIS-1149709, a Sloan Fellowship, and the National Institute on Disability Independent Living Rehabilitation Research.  ...

2010 Proceedings of the 19th international conference on World wide web - WWW '10  
Search engines are important resources for finding information on the Web. They are also important for publishers and advertisers to present their content to users.  ...  Thus, user satisfaction is key and must be quantified. In this tutorial, we give a practical review of web search metrics from a user satisfaction point of view.  ...  freshness, and presentation metrics which we briefly describe below and cover in more detail during the tutorial.  ...

Metrics for openness

David M. Nichols, Michael B. Twidale
2016 Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology  
In this paper we propose several metrics to describe different facets of open access and open research.  ...  We discuss measures to represent the public availability of articles along with their archival location, licences, access costs and supporting information.  ...  Clearly, Fully Open Papers are going to be rare: we wonder whether there are any significant papers that meet the criteria to be Fully Open.  ...

Meta-metric Evaluation of E-Commerce-related Metrics

A. Stefani, M. Xenos
2009 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
In this paper we present a model based on metametrics that suggests what metrics should be used in what way and how, when evaluating an e-commerce system.  ...  How can one measure the subjective? Metrics are one of the most powerful weapons in the arsenal for measuring quality. For such a weapon to be put in good use, guidelines for use should be available.  ...  The rest are newly introduced. In the rest of this section we are going to describe these metrics.  ...

Towards Metrics for Web Accessibility Evaluation

Sinésio Teles de Lima, Fernanda Lima, Káthia Marçal de Oliveira
2007 IFIP TC13 International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction  
Therefore, this article proposes a means of Web accessibility evaluation through metrics.  ...  Nowadays, accessibility is a crucial factor for Web site development and use, and yet, people with visual disabilities face many accessibility barriers that hinder the adequate understanding of Web contents  ...  OUR APPROACH TO EVALUATE WEB ACCESSIBILITY In this research, the Goal-Question-Metric (GQM) approach [2] was used to define what was going to be evaluated.  ...

Tool independence for the web accessibility quantitative metric

Markel Vigo, Giorgio Brajnik, Myriam Arrue, Julio Abascal
2009 Disability and Rehabilitation: Assistive Technology  
The Web Accessibility Quantitative Metric (WAQM) aims at accurately measuring the accessibility of web pages.  ...  Once WAQM was tuned, the accessibility of 15 web sites was measured with two metrics for web sites concluding that even if similar values can be produced, obtaining the same scores is undesirable since  ...  The conclusive interpretation of the results is that the metric can be used for ranking web pages when using EvalAccess and LIFT and with respect to web sites similar to the ones we tested.  ...

2010 2010 Developments in E-systems Engineering  
This work focuses on studying website structural and related metrics that can be used as indicators of the complexity of the websites.  ...  Websites structural metrics can be also used to predict maintainability requirements. Examples of some structural metrics evaluated in this study include: size, complexity, and speed of page loading.  ...  For example, the number of links in a web page is a size internal metric that we can directly measure.  ...
