Jalal Mahmud, Yevgen Borodin, Dipanjan Das, I. V. Ramakrishnan
2007 Proceedings of the 12th international conference on Intelligent user interfaces - IUI '07  
Web sites are designed for graphical mode of interaction. Sighted users can visually segment Web pages and quickly identify relevant information.  ...  Although, the use of shortcut keys and searching offers some improvements, the problem still remains. In this paper, we address this problem using the notion of context.  ...  The problem of information overload in non-visual Web access still remains. Is it possible to do better than that?  ...

Information overload in non-visual web transaction

Jalal Mahmud
2007 Proceedings of the 9th international ACM SIGACCESS conference on Computers and accessibility - Assets '07  
Preliminary results based on my system incorporating this idea, show a lot of promise in combating the information overload problem encountered by visually disabled individuals when they do transactions  ...  An interesting idea is to use context surrounding a link to identify relevant information on the next Web page.  ...  Thus, combating this information overload problem is critical especially when doing transactions using non-visual interaction modalities such as speech.  ...

Automated construction of web accessibility models from transaction click-streams

Jalal Mahmud, Yevgen Borodin, I. V. Ramakrishnan, C. R. Ramakrishnan
2009 Proceedings of the 18th international conference on World wide web - WWW '09  
One can combat this overload by using a transaction model for web accessibility that presents only fragments of web pages that are needed for doing transactions.  ...  Screen readers, the dominant assistive technology used by visually impaired people to access the Web, function by speaking out the content of the screen serially.  ...  Our models are used to combat information overload when performing web transaction non-visually.  ...
