Puzis, Yury (2012): Accessible web automation interface: a user study. In: Fourteenth Annual ACM SIGACCESS Conference on Assistive Technologies 2012. pp. 291-292. Available online

With the growth of the Web as a platform for performing many useful daily tasks, such as shopping and paying bills, and as an important vehicle for doing business, the Web's potential to improve the quality of life of blind and low-vision users is greater than ever. However, the growth of sophistication of Web applications continues to outpace the capabilities of tools that help make the Web more accessible. Web automation has the potential to bridge the divide between the ways visually impaired users and sighted users access the Web, and enable visually impaired users to breeze through Web browsing tasks that beforehand were slow, hard, or even impossible to achieve. Typical automation interfaces require that the user record a macro, a useful sequence of browsing steps, so that these steps can be replayed in the future. In this paper, I present the results of evaluation of two web automation user interfaces that enable web automation without having to record macros. The experiments suggest that the approach has the potential to significantly increase accessibility and usability of web pages by reducing interaction time, and by enhancing user experience.

Puzis, Yury (2012): An interface agent for non-visual, accessible web automation. In: Adjunct Proceedings of the 2012 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2012. pp. 55-58. Available online

The Web is far less usable and accessible for the users with visual impairments than it is for the sighted people. Web automation has the potential to bridge the divide between the ways visually impaired people and sighted people access the Web, and enable visually impaired users to breeze through Web browsing tasks that beforehand were slow, hard, or even impossible to achieve. Typical automation interfaces require that the user record a macro, a useful sequence of browsing steps, so that these steps can be re-played in the future. In this paper, I present a high-level overview of an approach that enables users to find quickly relevant information on the webpage, and automate browsing without recording macros. This approach is potentially useful both for visually impaired, and sighted users.

Borodin, Yevgen, Sovyak, Andrii, Dimitriyadi, Alexander, Puzis, Yury, Melnyk, Valentyn, Ahmed, Faisal, Dausch, Glenn and Ramakrishnan, I. V. (2012): Universal and ubiquitous web access with Capti. In: Proceedings of the 2012 International Cross-Disciplinary Conference on Web Accessibility W4A 2012. p. 27. Available online

In this paper we present Capti -- a universally and ubiquitously accessible web browsing application enabling intuitive and usable web access for people with and w/o vision impairments. Capti provides a usable screen-reader interface for web browsing and an accessible listen-to-it-later Playlist (charmtechlabs.com).

Ahmed, Faisal, Borodin, Yevgen, Puzis, Yury and Ramakrishnan, I. V. (2012): Why read if you can skim: towards enabling faster screen reading. In: Proceedings of the 2012 International Cross-Disciplinary Conference on Web Accessibility W4A 2012. p. 39. Available online

Skimming broadly refers to different speed-reading methods that aim to enhance the rate of reading without unduly compromising on comprehension and retention of information. Skimming of content could be particularly useful for people with vision impairments, who frequently experience information overload when listening to reams of digital content online. Support for usable and useful skimming in modern screen readers remains very poor. This paper explores the user requirements for a usable non-visual skimming interface, informed by a large-scale human-subject experiment with blind individuals. Specifically, the study has: (1) helped identify the type of skimming that can be useful in screen reading main content in web pages; (2) led to the development of a usable interface for accessible online skimming; (3) demonstrated the utility of the accessible skimming interface in two realistic use scenarios; (4) identified automatic summarization techniques that could "closely" approximate skimming methods used by sighted people.

In recent years, the Web has become an ever more sophisticated and irreplaceable tool in our daily lives. While the visual Web has advanced at a rapid pace, assistive technology has not been able to keep up, increasingly putting visually impaired users at a disadvantage. Web automation has the potential to bridge the accessibility divide between the ways blind and sighted people access the Web; specifically, it can enable blind people to accomplish web browsing tasks that were previously slow, hard, or even impossible to achieve. In this paper, we propose and evaluate an intuitive and accessible web automation interface. We validate the design in a Wizard-of-Oz user study with visually-impaired subjects and show that the proposed approach has the potential to significantly increase accessibility and usability of web pages, reduce interaction time, and increase user satisfaction. Our findings demonstrate the feasibility of and emphasize the pressing need for truly accessible web automation technologies.

In recent years, the Web has become an ever more sophisticated and irreplaceable tool in our daily lives. While the visual Web has been advancing at a rapid pace, assistive technology has not been able to keep up, increasingly putting visually impaired users at a disadvantage. Web automation has the potential to bridge the accessibility divide between the ways blind and sighted people access the Web; specifically, it can enable blind people to accomplish quickly web browsing tasks that were previously slow, hard, or even impossible to complete. In this paper, we propose guidelines for the design of intuitive and accessible web automation that has the potential to increase accessibility and usability of web pages, reduce interaction time, and improve user browsing experience. Our findings and a preliminary user study demonstrate the feasibility of and emphasize the pressing need for truly accessible web automation technologies.

Borodin, Yevgen, Ahmed, Faisal, Islam, Muhammad Asiful, Puzis, Yury, Melnyk, Valentyn, Feng, Song, Ramakrishnan, I. V. and Dausch, Glenn (2010): Hearsay: a new generation context-driven multi-modal assistive web browser. In: Proceedings of the 2010 International Conference on the World Wide Web 2010. pp. 1233-1236. Available online

This demo will present HearSay, a multi-modal non-visual web browser, which aims to bridge the growing Web Accessibility divide between individuals with visual impairments and their sighted counterparts, and to facilitate full participation of blind individuals in the growing Web-based society.
