Scrolling behaviour with single- and multi-column layout

Cameron Braganza, Kim Marriott, Peter Moulder, Michael Wybrow, Tim Dwyer
2009 Proceedings of the 18th international conference on World wide web - WWW '09  
The horizontal-scroll layout model-in which text is laid out in columns whose height is set to that of the browser window and the viewer scrolls horizontally-seems well-suited to multi-column layout on  ...  The standard layout model used by web browsers is to lay text out in a vertical scroll using a single column.  ...  Acknowledgments We thank Linda McIver for her insightful comments on the experimental design, Nathan Hurst whose comments helped to prompt the study, and Andreas Paepcke and the anonymous reviewers for  ...

Satisficing scrolls

Nathan Hurst, Kim Marriott
2008 Proceeding of the eighth ACM symposium on Document engineering - DocEng '08  
We consider vertical scroll-like layout with floating figures referenced within the text where floats can have alternate sizes, may be optional, move from one side to the other and change their order.  ...  We present at a new approach to finding aesthetically pleasing page layouts. We do not aim to find an optimal layout, rather the aim is to find a layout which is not obviously wrong.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We would like to thank Tim Cole, Paul Harrison and Grayson Lang for their suggestions and criticisms.  ...

Metrics for the evaluation of news site content layout in large-screen contexts

Michael Nebeling, Fabrice Matulic, Moira C. Norrie
2011 Proceedings of the 2011 annual conference on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '11  
The results show that the spatial distribution of page elements does not scale well with larger viewing sizes, which leads to an increasing amount of unused screen real estate and unnecessary scrolling  ...  We derive a number of device-sensitive metrics to measure the quality of web page layout in different viewing contexts, which can guide the design of flexible layout templates that scale effectively on  ...  The first problem is that current support for multi-column layout in popular browsers is at best experimental and subject to change, as this is a feature proposed to be included only with the upcoming  ...

They also implement different perspective distortions: enlargement and distortion of lateral columns (IV) versus enlargement of central columns and dwindling plus distortion of lateral columns (OV).  ...  Despite large inter-individual differences in performance, a majority of participants carried out ST1 tasks more effectively and efficiently with IV than with OV, as regards error rates (statistically  ...  The spatial layout of photo thumbnails on the display indicates all pair-wise mutual similarities between photos, based on visual and semantic picture features; features are grouped in a single feature  ...

Review of automatic document formatting

Nathan Hurst, Wilmot Li, Kim Marriott
2009 Proceedings of the 9th ACM symposium on Document engineering - DocEng '09  
Related problems such as widget and diagram layout, as well as temporal layout issues that arise in multimedia documents are outside the scope of this review.  ...  We review the literature on automatic document formatting with an emphasis on recent work in the field.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We would like to thank Simon Towers, Grayson Lang and Bert Bos for their suggestions and criticisms.  ...

Faster document navigation with space-filling thumbnails

Andy Cockburn, Carl Gutwin, Jason Alexander
2006 Proceedings of the SIGCHI conference on Human Factors in computing systems - CHI '06  
The second and third studies (n=32 and n=14) were detailed comparisons of SFT with thumbnail-enhanced scrollbars (TES), which performed well in the first experiment.  ...  The first study (n=13) compared seven current scrolling techniques, and showed that SFT is significantly faster than the other methods.  ...  SFT replaces scrollbased document movement with two views: a single-page view, and a matrix-layout thumbnail view that shows all pages at once in miniature.  ...

Tools and Architectural Support for Crowdsourced Adaptation of Web Interfaces [chapter]

Michael Nebeling, Moira C. Norrie
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
There is a vast body of research dealing with the development of context-aware web applications that can adapt to different screen and user contexts.  ...  However, the range and growing diversity of devices used for web access makes it increasingly difficult for developers to provide a design and layout that adapts well to every client.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank Michael Grossniklaus and Stefania Leone for their valuable feedback on earlier drafts of this paper.  ...

Motor Behavior Models for Human-Computer Interaction [chapter]

I. Scott MacKenzie
2003 HCI Models, Theories, and Frameworks  
This chapter is motivated by the need to match the movement limits, capabilities, and potential of humans with input devices and interaction techniques on computing systems.  ...  As much as we focus on specific models of human movement and user interaction with devices, this chapter is also about models in general.  ...  There are two main approaches to text entry on a phone keypad: the multi-tap method and the one-key with disambiguation method. Multi-tap.  ...

Using alternative views for layout, comparison and context switching tasks in wall displays

Anastasia Bezerianos
2007 Proceedings of the 2007 conference of the computer-human interaction special interest group (CHISIG) of Australia on Computer-human interaction: design: activities, artifacts and environments - OZCHI '07  
We observed that for a layout and comparison task with frequent context switching, users preferred ScaleView portals.  ...  Among these, layout management, context switching and comparison tasks could benefit from the use of interactive shortcut views of remote areas of a wall display, presented close to the user.  ...  Finally, we have augmented the portals with a third focusing mechanism, traditional scroll-bars.  ...

Users' eye gaze pattern in organization-based recommender interfaces

Li Chen, Pearl Pu
2011 Proceedings of the 15th international conference on Intelligent user interfaces - IUI '11  
In addition, more users chose products from the organization layouts. Combining the results with our prior works, we suggest a set of design guidelines and practical implications to our future work.  ...  In this paper, we report the hotspot and gaze path of users' eye-movements on three different layouts for recommender interfaces.  ...  indicated that users spent less time scrolling when they were with the multi-column presentation of large textual documents in web-browsers [1] .  ...

Pickup Usability Dominates

Mark David Dunlop, Michelle Montgomery Masters
2009 International Journal of Mobile Human Computer Interaction  
As the mobile phone industry moves to mainstream touch screen interaction we will review the range of input techniques for mobiles, together with evaluations that have taken place to assess their validity  ...  Text entry on mobile devices (e.g. phones and PDAs) has been a research challenge since devices shrank below laptop size: mobile devices are simply too small to have a traditional full-size keyboard.  ...  We are also grateful to those organisations and companies that have given permission to use images throughout the paper. All trademarks are used with appropriate reference to their holders.  ...

External Navigation Control and Guidance for Learning with Spatial Hypermedia

Antoon Verhoeven, Kai Warendorf
1999 Journal of Interactive Media in Education  
The World Wide Web has become a widely available platform for learning with hypermedia. However, WWW hypermedia is often limited in both guidance and navigation support.  ...  Object libraries and scripting of adaptive hypermedia objects help a HyperMap author to be productive.  ...  styles, with adaptive guidance based on overall browsing behaviour.  ...

2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We also compare our solution with existing tools for similar goals.  ...  The solution also supports end-users in customizing multi-device ubiquitous user interfaces.  ...  End-users already have difficulties with single device applications, thus it easy to understand how such difficulties increase when considering applications for multi-device environments.  ...
