Neto, Americo Talarico and Fortes, Renata Pontin de Mattos (2010): Improving multimodal interaction design with the MMWA authoring environment. In: ACM 28th International Conference on Design of Communication 2010. pp. 151-158.

Multimodal Interfaces are designed to increase the human-machine communication bandwidth and to enhance user's satisfaction and task completion efficiency by providing a more natural way of interacting with computers. In contrast, developing multimodal interfaces is still a difficult task due to the lack of tools that consider not only code generation, but usability of such interfaces. In this paper, we present the MultiModal Web Approach's authoring environment, whose main goal is enhancing the dissemination of knowledge used in a project for future developments that are benefited by proven solutions to recurring problems in the multimodal context.

This poster describes a novel approach that is intended to combine graphical user interfaces (GUI) and voice interaction in the Web throughout the design and the development of intuitive and user-friendly multimodal interfaces. We are considering the user interface design modeling aspects, principles and guidelines that are being used to design voice and GUI. Our goal is to get an organized process to the design of multimodal interfaces that will let the designers to evaluate the interfaces with real users, find out usability issues and report the rationale to correct those issues. Moreover it will capture and store the acquired knowledge gathered during the multimodal interfaces design by using the design rationale (DR) and design patterns techniques.

Neto, Americo Talarico, Bittar, Thiago Jabur, Pontin, Renata, Fortes, Mattos and Felizardo, Ktia (2008): Abordagem para o desenvolvimento e avaliação de interfaces multimodais web pautada em princpios de usabilidade. In: Proceedings of the 2008 Brazilian Symposium on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2008. pp. 21-30.

In this paper we describe an approach to facilitate the design of Web multimodal interfaces aiming at improving the user experience and the user interface usability using speech recognition and speech synthesis together with the usual graphical user interfaces. It is also presented a proposal of usability evaluation based on the heuristic evaluation, which considers the multimodal principles identified during a case study. As a result, from literature review and the execution of the case study, using the approach in question, we are reporting our considerations for the design, development and improvement of the Web multimodal interfaces.

Anacleto, Junia Coutinho, Carvalho, Aparecido Fabiano P. de, Nris, Vnia Paula de Almeida, Godoi, Muriel de Souza, Zem-Mascarenhas, Slvia, Neto, Americo Talarico and Lieberman, Henry (2006): Applying common sense to distance learning: the case of home care education. In: Proceedings of the 2006 Brazilian Symposium on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2006. pp. 1-4.

One of the challenges of Distance Learning (DL) over the Web is that it imposes physical distance between teachers and students, and thus reduces opportunities for teachers to fully understand the state of student knowledge and adapt instructional material to their needs. While the knowledge to be taught is usually well expressed in the curriculum material, the knowledge of a typical student is harder to codify. In this paper, it is shown how a large knowledge base of common sense statements can be used to help model student knowledge and consequently to help teachers plan learning actions by * Identifying topics that need coverage by the curriculum; * Identifying what a student is already likely to know; * Locating possible misconceptions that need to be corrected; and * Assuring that the student understands the vocabulary needed to express relevant subject material.

Neris, Vnia P. Almeida, Silva, Jnia C. A., Neto, Americo Talarico and Zem-Mascarenhas, Slvia (2005): Cognitive strategies to the increase of hyper document quality to distance learning. In: Proceedings of the 2005 Latin American conference on Human-computer interaction October 23-26, 2005, Cuernavaca, Mexico. pp. 295-300.

For an effective process of distance learning it is necessary to assist teachers during the design of instructional material, helping them designing the material structure, navigation, organization and layout and considering pedagogical aspects that facilitate the student knowledge building. We consider usability as the needed effort to use the software and the material as an interface to students. In this context, if the material is made easier to be understood, teachers are reducing the students' effort and increasing the material usability. The main goal of this work was to evaluate the use of a group of Cognitive Strategies as an aid for structuring and organizing the instructional material content delivered through the interface, aiming to increase the hyper document usability and consequently its quality. It is intended to write and document these principles in a Pattern format.
