Crease, M., Brewster, S.A. and Gray, P. (2000) Caring, sharing widgets: a toolkit of sensitive widgets. In: 14th Annual Conference of the British HCI Group, Sunderland, England, 5-8 September 2000, pp. 257-270. ISBN 1852333189




Although most of us communicate using multiple sensory modalities in our lives, and many of our computers are similarly capable of multi-modal interaction, most human-computer interaction is predominantly in the visual mode. This paper describes a toolkit of widgets that are capable of presenting themselves in multiple modalities, but further are capapble of adapting their presentation to suit the contexts and environments in which they are used. This is of increasing importance as the use of mobile devices becomes ubiquitous.
