Current Study: Effective and Pleasant Interaction Dialog Design for Assisting People with Visual Impairment (Work submitted to ACM ASSETS Conference 2019 )
We are investigating conversation based prosthetic and an interaction that it provides to People with Visual Impairment (PVI) through studying experience of a remote sighted agent at Aira (https://aira.io/) and PVI from providing assistance to PVI and receiving it from the sighted agent at Aira. We in particular have interests on how conversation modalities (verbal and nonverbal) are utilized and how it is selected for accommodating to context and temporal relevancy and to needs of particular task. Also we are investigating an integration of different kind of modality (e.g. information presented with haptic) into the conversation modality and how it improves guidance support and interaction.
