"Ben P. Challis"

Ben Challis is a composer, performer and technologist. With research interests that embrace the notion of design-for-all within music-performance, he has worked on various projects that explore alternative modes of interaction with sound and music for people with specific individual needs. As a performer, he works with these same technologies, exploring their creative and expressive potential within free-improvisation. As composer he has composed scores for film and theatre productions. He is a Senior Lecturer and Joint Award Leader in Popular Music at the University of Glamorgan, ATRiuM.

Challis, Ben and Edwards, Alistair D. N. (2000): Weasel: A System for the Non-Visual Presentation of Music Notation. In: Proceedings of 6th International Conference on Computers Helping People with Special Needs. ICCHP 2000 2000.

A computer-based approach to the delivery of music notation for blind people is described. Existing non-visual alternatives present musical information in a serial fashion which places a high cognitive demand upon the reader who, in effect, must read all the information regardless of its significance to any particular learning task. The Weasel notation system has been designed to address this problem using interactive high-level tactile representations, synthetic speech and audio playback.

Challis, Ben and Edwards, Alistair D. N. (2000): Design Principles for Tactile Interaction. In: Proceedings of the First International Workshop on Haptic Human-Computer Interaction 2000. pp. 17-24

Although the integration of tactile feedback within the human-computer interface could have considerable benefits this channel of communication is often overlooked or, at most, employed on an ad hoc basis. One contributing factor to the reluctance of interface designers to consider using tactual feedback is the lack of established design principles for doing so. A preliminary set of principles for tactile interface design are described. These have been constructed using the findings of a study into the presentation of music notation to blind people.
