Editors' comments: “Computers and People with Disabilities” is a reprint of an article originally published in Communications of the ACM in 1992. In this article, Glinert and York issued a “call-to-arms” for research and development on technologies for people with disabilities. Specifically, they highlighted that human-computer interfaces at the time generally failed to take into account the needs of disabled users. Their challenge was to change computing culture to address this need. Their article remains timely today in its consideration of government, industry, and private foundations working with researchers to achieve accessible technology. With the recent launch of Transactions on Accessible Computing, this seems an appropriate time to consider progress in the field since, as well as current research trends. The reprinting of this article is followed by four commentaries by leaders in accessibility research. Each was cited in the 1992 article and each now gives their view on how the field has progressed since that time. In their commentaries, some themes emerge and new technologies are discussed. In short, their commentaries point to both a great deal of progress and a lack of progress. All four of the commentators note areas where computing continues to present barriers rather than assist users with disabilities. Alistair Edwards sets the stage with a look back at interfaces and input technologies popular in 1992, with attention paid to access problems related to graphical user interfaces (GUIs) that have consumed much research energy since 1992. Alan Newell highlights disability concerns that were not given large research consideration in 1992, but which have now become significant due, in large part, to changes in global demographics. Specifically, he brings visibility to research on older adults and cognitively disabled users. A number of advances in technology and methodology since 1992 are discussed by the commentators. The ubiquity of computing and its critical adoption in the world today are highlighted. The commentators reflect, for example, on technologies produced by research for disabled users that have now impacted mainstream offerings on standards for accessibility that have emerged worldwide and their impact and on assistive technologies that have been developed. Critically, the proliferation of the World Wide Web was not foreseen in 1992 and its use by people with disabilities is discussed. Gregg Vanderheiden considers the opportunity afforded by the Web to provide widespread availability of accessible software. Glinert and York discussed the need for design for disability. While research relevant to users with disabilities is gaining momentum, the commentators indicate that users with disabilities still struggle with much of today's IT. The commentators note current trends toward designs that take into account disabled users. Notably, Richard Ladner ends his commentary by mentioning the issue of empowerment. Users with disabilities have moved beyond simply needing the protections of regulation that were emerging in 1992, to being active participants in designing solutions to allow full participation in the current social, political, and economic environments. Together, these articles provide a great deal of food for thought on technology advances and new considerations of accessible technology.

We present UnWindows V1, a set of tools designed to assist low vision users of X Windows in effectively accomplishing two mundane yet critical interaction tasks: selectively magnifying areas of the screen so that the contents can be seen comfortably, and keeping track of the location of the mouse pointer. We describe our software from both the end user's and implementor's points of view, with particular emphasis on issues related to screen magnification techniques. We conclude with details regarding software availability and plans for future extensions.

The potential utility of dividing the information flowing from computer to human among several sensory modalities is investigated by means of a rigorous experiment which compares the effectiveness of auditory and visual cues in the performance of a visual search task. The results indicate that a complex auditory cue can be used to replace cues traditionally presented in the visual modality. Implications for the design of multimodal workstations are discussed.

Glinert, Ephraim P. (1989): Towards Software Metrics for Visual Programming. In International Journal of Man-Machine Studies, 30 (4) pp. 425-445.
A framework for formulating metrics for visual computing environments is established, based on the concept that for any community of users such environments must be viewed in terms of a multi-faceted collection of relevant attributes. These attributes ultimately allow us to defined, for any environment, a pair of measures termed coefficients of attraction and repulsion, which together enable us to select from among several candidate environments that which is best suited, in a certain sense, to the users in question. The exposition and theoretical development are followed by an example of how our tool might be applied to several of the better-known visual environments that had been implemented up to the early 1980's.

The SUNPICT environment, which supports interactive graphical composition and execution of procedural programs, incorporates many novel features which have been unavailable in previous visual systems. Both textual names and simple icons are associated with all variables; the icon's task in this case is to rapidly convey type information to the observer. The run-time action associated with a program icon may be specified either by means of an iconic (SUNPICT) subprogram or, alternativity when a mathematical calculation is required, by writing textual code in a simple Lisp-like dialect; this code can be changed on the fly, as necessary. User program modules are not limited by screen size, but rather are potentially infinite in all four directions of the compass. The cumulative effect of these and other visual features (including color and animation), in conjunction with the efficient algorithms which underly the implementation, is that SUNPICT is able to effectively handle larger user programs than its predecessors.

Our objective in this paper is to motivate and develop a formal model for iconic programming environments. Our model for these highly visual environments is based on the concept of class-instance pairs, and is therefore named CLIP. After the exposition, we enumerate several important applications which attest to the model's utility and broad scope.
