A Quality-aware View of Accessibility for Voice-based Interfaces

Authors: Zhixuan Zhou, Tianwei Chen

Voice interfaces are giving people who have difficulty using graphic-based systems more access to information and services on the Internet. However, there hasn’t been a widely-acknowledged definition of accessibility in this research field. While progress in voice-interface technologies do improve people’s user experience, privacy issues arise and contradict with the nature of accessibility in many cases. In our extended abstract, we try to propose a definition of accessibility from a quality-aware perspective. Accessibility (as generally defined), usability, personalization, confidence and privacy are adopted as five metrics for evaluating quality-aware accessibility. Privacy issues are given special attention when we pursue better accessibility. Real-world experimental platforms can be built under this guidance later on.
