Design of an e-book user interface and visualizations to support reading for comprehension
Current e-Book browsers provide minimal support for comprehending the organization, narrative structure, and themes, of large complex books. In order to build an understanding of such books, readers should be provided with user interfaces that present, and relate, the organizational, narrative and thematic structures. We propose adapting information retrieval techniques for the purpose of discovering these structures, and sketch three distinctive visualizations for presenting these structures to the e-Book reader. These visualizations are presented within an initial design for an e-Book browser. Categories and Subject Descriptors H.5.2 [Information Systems]: Information Interfaces and Presentation General Terms Design Keywords E-Book, Visualization and User Interface, Information Retrieval, Reading Tasks, Topic Detection and Tracking.
