Abstract. User behaviour analysis requires defining experimental sessions with numerous participants. In this context, the specification of experiments is a demanding task, as several issues have to be considered such as the type of experiment, the type and number of tasks, the definition of questionnaires and the user interaction data to be gathered. The analysis of collected data is also complex and often requires repeatedly examining recorded interaction videos. In order to deal with these tasks, we present a platform called RemoTest which assists researchers to specify and conduct experimental sessions as well as to gather and analyse the interaction data. This platform has been applied to define different formal user studies on the web and has assisted researchers in detecting the main interaction characteristics of different user profiles and settings.

"Prejudices, memories, expectations and confidence influence experienced accessibility on the Web"

2015 Apirila 22 ·

Evidence suggests that compliance to accessibility standards does not guarantee a satisfying user experience on the Web. Theactual accessibility of a website is worthless if users cannot perceive it. Unmet content and functionality related expectations havebeen identified as the main user problems not covered by guidelines. We expand on this by examining the role played by subjectiveand experiential dimensions, and particularly expectations, on users’ perceived web accessibility. We conducted a study with11 blind participants, who had to navigate on 4 restaurant websites, to uncover how these expectations shape their accessibilityperception. The thematic analysis on the transcribed interviews reveals that expectations are built up on previous experiences(either physical or via web) and preconceived ideas. We found that aspects, such as prejudices on branding issues or memoriesevoked by past experiences or emotional bonds, can a ect how user perceive and experience accessibility. Web content explicitlylabelled as accessible arises the curiosity and creates expectations about the accessibility of the website. We also observed thatnon-met expectations are often related to a sense of uncertainty and doubts, which can have an impact not only on participants’perceived web accessibility but on their user experience.

"Integrating adaptation rules for people with special needs in model-based UI development process"

R. Miñón, F. Paternò, M. Arrue, J. Abascal. Integrating adaptation rules for people with special needs in model-based UI development process. Universal Access in the Information Society. 2015. DOI: 10.1007/s10209-015-0406-3

Abstract. The adaptation of user interfaces for people with special needs is a promising approach in order to enable their access to digital services. Model-based user interfaces provide a useful approach for this purpose since they allow tailoring final user interfaces with a high degree of flexibility. This paper describes a system called Adaptation Integration System aimed at providing Cameleon Reference Framework model-based tools with a mechanism to integrate adaptation rules in the development process. Thus, more accessible user tailored interfaces can be automatically generated. The services provided by the system can be applied at both design time and runtime. At design time, a user interface can be tailored at any abstraction level in the development process. At runtime, changes in the context of use trigger the adaptation process. Adaptation rules are stored in a repository tagged with meta-information useful for the adaptation process, such as the granularity of the adaptations and the abstraction level. As case studies, two applications have been developed using the services provided by the system. One of them exploits the benefits at design time whereas the other application is devoted to describe the adaptation process at runtime. The results obtained in these two scenarios demonstrate the viability and potential of the Adaption Integration System since even inexperienced designers may efficiently produce accessible user interfaces.

LABURPENA

Erabiltzaile interfaze guztien garapenean irisgarritasuna kontuan hartzea Informazioaren Gizarteak ezartzen duen betebeharretako bat da. Irisgarritasun eskakizunak garapen prozesuaren lehenengo urratsetatik sartzeak ahalbidetu dezake oztoporik gabeko erabiltzaile interfazeen garapena. Ondorioz, behar bereziak dituzten erabiltzaileentzat arazorik gabeko elkarrekintza bermatuko da. Zentzu honetan, ereduetan oinarritutako interfazeen sortze automatikoa funts sendo bat izan daiteke, izan ere, erabiltzaileari egokitutako interfaze irisgarriak sortzeko sistema automatikoak garatzea du helburu. Sistema hauen abantaila nagusia honako hau da: edozein diseinatzaile gaitzen dutela erabiltzaile interfaze egokiak sortzeko nahiz eta bere irisgarritasun jakintza maila handia ez izan. Horregatik, sistema hauek beharrezko irisgarritasun eskakizun guztiak euren prozesu osoan kontuan hartu behar dituzte.

Tesi honek ereduetan oinarritutako erabiltzaile interfazeen garapen automatikorako sistemak sortzeko erreferentziazko marko bat definitzen du. Marko honen helburua zera da, egoera ezberdinetan behar bereziak dituzten erabiltzaileei egokitutako interfazeak automatikoki sortzeko goitik beherako metodologia bat definitu eta eraikitzea eta sortzen diren interfazeak ebaluatzea. Gainera, erreferentziazko marko honek egoera ezberdinetako ezaugarriak kontuan hartzen ditu adibidez garapen batzuentzat ezartzen diren eskakizun espezifikoak.

Proposatutako erreferentzia markoa hiru sistema ezberdinen garapenean ebaluatu da, bakoitza nonahiko inguruneen egoera ezberdinetan aplikagarria zelarik eta eskakizun espezifikoak zituelarik. Sistema horiek automatikoki sortutako erabiltzaile interfazeak metodo ezberdinak erabiliz ebaluatu dira adituetan oinarritutako teknikak eta erabiltzaile frogak erabiliz.

Horrez gain, Cameleon Erreferentzia Markoan oinarritutako modeloen garapena errazteko tresnak ere sortu dira. Horrela, modelo ezberdinetan irisgarritasunaren baldintzak definitzeko prozesua errazten da, adibidez erabiltzaile interfaze abstraktuaren modeloan eta ataza modeloan. Hori dela eta, tresna hauek eta definitutako erreferentzia markoan oinarriturik garatu diren sistemek erabiltzaileei egokitutako interfaze irisgarrien garapena, kudeaketa eta mantentze-lana erraztuko dute.

Ikastaroa

En un sentido literal, un experimento es una prueba pero desde el punto de vista másformal D. C. Montgomery lo define como “una prueba o serie de pruebas en las que sehacen cambios deliberados en las variables de entrada de un proceso o sistema paraobservar e identificar las razones de los cambios que pudieran observarse en larespuesta de salida”.Para analizar los resultados de los experimentos y obtener conclusiones válidas yobjetivas este taller pretende mostrar a los asistentes técnicas estadísticas que permitanentre otras cosas: comparar tratamientos experimentales, determinar las variablesverdaderamente influyentes, cuantificar el efecto de las variables en el resultado delexperimento, etc.El germen de este taller está basado en las ideas de G. E. Box, “Teaching engineersexperimental design with a paper helicopter”, y presentará un “toy problem” con el quelos asistentes podrán experimentar de manera real y aplicar las técnicas que sepresentarán.
