We address the challenge of supporting collaborators who access a shared interactive space through different sets of modalities. This was achieved by designing a cross-modal tool combining a visual diagram editor with auditory and haptic views to allow simultaneous visual and non-visual interaction. The tool was deployed in various workplaces where visually-impaired and sighted coworkers access and edit diagrams as part of their daily jobs. We use our observations and analyses of the recorded interactions to outline preliminary design recommendations for supporting cross-modal collaboration.

In: Proceedings of DIS12 Designing Interactive Systems 2012. pp. 38-47.
There is an increasing desire to remain connected when physically distant and computer-mediated communication (CMC) is one means of satisfying this desire. In particular, there is a growing trend for individuals to use commercially available technology to connect with friends and family in social and leisure settings. Drawing on this trend, performative arts and existing telecommunications research, we identify the social practice of sharing a meal together as ripe for reinterpretation within CMC. We explore the opportunities to design a technology platform that supports remote guests in experiencing togetherness and playfulness within the practices of a traditional dinner party. Through both visual and aural channels as well as remote agency, the dinner guests were able to share a holistic telematic dining experience comparable to a traditional co-presence dinner. Based on the findings, we propose that one must consider the social structure and cultural background of users to inform the design of a technological intervention.

Frauenberger, Christopher and Stockman, Tony (2009): Auditory display design -- An investigation of a design pattern approach. In International Journal of Human-Computer Studies, 67 (11) pp. 907-922.
We present the evaluation of a methodological design framework that supports expert and novice designers in creating auditory artefacts in human-technology interaction. We first motivate the development of our framework by analysing available guidance and the current practice in the field. Subsequently, we recapitulate on the design of the framework -- paco, pattern design in the context space -- and present its key concepts and methods. The evaluation of paco aimed to investigate how useful this framework is in a real-world environment. It was conducted in two phases: experts in auditory display design first captured successful designs through paco and created a body of design patterns. These patterns were subsequently used in a controlled experiment with novice designers who were given a design task that forced them to use audio. The results demonstrate that paco has facilitated the transfer of design knowledge and good practice from experts to novices through design patterns. The context space, a key concept in paco, improves the contextual awareness of designers and provides an organising principle for problems, patterns and artefacts. We close by reflecting on the results and discussing future lines of research.

Metatla, Oussama, Bryan-Kinns, Nick and Stockman, Tony (2008): Constructing relational diagrams in audio: the multiple perspective hierarchical approach. In: Tenth Annual ACM SIGACCESS Conference on Assistive Technologies 2008. pp. 97-104.
Although research on non-visual access to visually represented information is steadily growing, very little work has investigated how such forms of representation could be constructed through non-visual means. We discuss in this paper our approach for providing audio access to relational diagrams using multiple perspective hierarchies, and describe the design of two interaction strategies for constructing and manipulating such diagrams through this approach. A comparative study that we conducted with sighted users showed that a non-guided strategy allowed for significantly faster interaction times, and that both strategies supported similar levels of diagram comprehension. Overall, the reported study revealed that using multiple perspective hierarchies to structure the information encoded in a relational diagram enabled users construct and manipulate such information through an audio-only interface, and that combining aspects from the guided and the non-guided strategies could support greater usability.

Although research on non-visual access to visualisations is steadily growing, very little work has investigated strategies for constructing such forms of representation through non-visual means. This paper describes the design of two interaction strategies for constructing and manipulating relational diagrams in audio. We report on a study that compared the two strategies, and discuss their advantages and disadvantages in terms of how efficiently they support the activity of constructing diagrams in an audio-only interface.

There is a need to assess the applicability of conventional Usability Evaluation Methods to users with disabilities, given the growing importance of involving these users in the usability evaluation process. We found that conventional Think Aloud Protocol cannot be used as is, and will require modification to be useful, when evaluating websites with blind users.

In the past, CSCW systems have been studied with little consideration of the social context in which they will be used (see Ref. ). A framework of social context has been proposed  that takes the social aspects of a collaborating community to be a vital consideration in the design of CSCW systems. This paper aims to extend Mantovani's framework to deal with the issues of human error. The social context plays a large part in the cause, detection, level of consequence and recovery of erroneous actions in CSCW. This paper considers how current classification of human errors might be adapted for application in CSCW. A framework has been proposed which can be used in the analysis of the social context of CSCW.
