These days I’m the Library Web Developer at CNIB, but this role follows on from a decade or more in academic research based on design for accessibility. This blog post is designed to give an introduction to how I became… Read moreScoping and structuring my accessibility research

Accessible text input using TUP text prediction

1. TUP TUP (Transparent User guided Prediction), is a technique developed in 2006 by Morten Proschowsky, Nette Schultz, and Niels Ebbe Jacobsen. It was aimed at improving the text entry rate on touch sensitive wheels. Remember that 2006 is the year… Read moreAccessible text input using TUP text prediction

Polymorphic task decomposition and accessibility

Polymorphic task decomposition is an extension of standard task-action grammars. It is a view of UI design that focuses on the actions triggered by user activity: on this, do that. What follows is a reflection on polymorphic task decomposition, written… Read morePolymorphic task decomposition and accessibility
