A Multimodal Interface for Digital Talking Books
This paper presents a framework for the production of digital talking books. These books target primarily the visually impaired community, but users with other characteristics can also benefit from these developments. Special attention is given to the interaction characteristics of the books. Visual and audio are combined to give multimodal access to the books. Methods for enhancing the "reading" experience are focused, as part of a larger setting, enabling the authoring, by reuse and enrichment, of digital multimedia and multimodal documents. We also report some of the preliminary findings of the usability evaluation tests being conducted. KEYWORDS Digital Talking Books, Multimodal Interfaces, Visually Impaired Access, Enhanced Books
