A system design for human factors studies of speech-enabled Web browsing

By L. J Adams, S. Damper, Stevan Harnad and W Hall


This paper describes the design of a system which will subsequently be used as the basis of a range of empirical studies aimed at discovering how best to harness speech recognition capabilities in multimodal multimedia computing. Initial work focuses on speech-enabled browsing of the World Wide Web, which was never designed for such use. System design is complete, and is being evaluated via usability testing
