GURU: a multimedia distance-learning framework for users with disabilities
GURU is a distance-learning environment that renders multimedia information to users with disabilities in an accessible manner. It is an implementation framework developed as part of an effort to provide accessible multimedia information to end users with perceptual (visual and auditory), cognitive or motor impairments. GURU is based on the MPEG4 standard, and it modifies MP4 content and the presentation of the different objects in the scene dynamically based on users’ visual, auditory and motor abilities. This paper briefly describes the implementation of the prototype framework and illustrates sample adaptations as implemented in this framework. Categories and Subject Descriptors H.4 [Information Systems Applications]: Miscellaneous General Terms Design, Human Factors Keywords Accessibility, Adaptation, Multimedia, MPEG-4, DistanceLearning Recent trends in ubiquitous computing focuses on providing information embellished with multimedia data to users anywhere and anytime.
