Embedded Cultural Features in the Design of an Accessibility Agent for the Web [chapter]

Ingrid Teixeira Monteiro, Clarisse Sieckenius de Souza
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper presents the Web Navigation Helper (WNH), an interface agent for users with special needs originally developed for Brazilian users.  ...  WNH mediates scripted interaction with web sites, by providing alternative dialogs with appropriate style, structure, etc.  ...  This interface, which works truly as a Web Navigation Helper, is then made available for elderly users that need help to do tasks on the Web.  ...

Design Criteria for Web Applications Adapted to Emotions [chapter]

Giulio Mori, Fabio Paternó, Ferdinando Furci
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The main goal of this work is to identify a set of design criteria for Web applications taking into account the users' emotions.  ...  The resulting design criteria can form the basis for a set of emotion-related guidelines for Web application user interfaces.  ...  Thus, Web developers and designers need support on some design criteria (such as choice of user interface elements, navigation style, suitable colors, etc.) associated to emotional states.  ...

Martín González Rodríguez, María del Puerto Paule Ruiz, Juan Ramón Pérez Pérez, Aitor de la Puente Salan, María del Carmen Suárez Torrente
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
If a web site pretends to be usable for dozens or even hundreds kinds of different users, it must be generated dynamically, depending on the interaction requirements of the current user.  ...  Addressing the interaction requirements of the users of a web site at its the design stage seems to be an impossibly task as there are too many cognitive, perceptive and motive factors involved.  ...  To show this, we would like to analyze an everyday task in web engineering: the design of the navigation bar (table of contents) for a web portal.  ...
