Automatically Generating Tailored Accessible User Interfaces for Ubiquitous Services

Julio Abascal, Amaia Aizpurua, Idoia Cearreta, Borja Gamecho, Nestor Garay-Vitoria and Raúl Miñón


Ambient Assisted Living environments provide support to people with disabilities and elderly people, usually at home. This concept can be extended to public spaces, where ubiquitous accessible services allow people with disabilities to access to intelligent machines such as ATMs or information kiosks. One of the key issues in achieving full accessibility is the instantaneous generation of an adapted accessible interface suited the specific user that requests the service. In this paper we present the method used by the EGOKI interface generator to select the most suitable interaction resources and modalities for each user in the automatic creation of the interface. The validation of the interfaces generated for four different types of users is presented and discussed.
