[MAG] ACM Interactions: Toward Classroom Experiences Inclusive of Students with Disabilities

More than ever, digital content and tools are being introduced and accepted in diverse educational contexts, offering opportunities for innovation and for making learning processes more encompassing, engaging, and collaborative. Multimodal tools fostering tactile, auditory, and spatial learning promise increased access for students with vision impairments (VI). Yet many existing popular...

[J] Science Advances: Sampling molecular conformations and dynamics in a multiuser virtual reality framework

Abstract:We describe a framework for interactive molecular dynamics in a multiuser virtual reality (VR) environment, combining rigorous cloud-mounted atomistic physics simulations with commodity VR hardware, which we have made accessible to readers (see isci.itch.io/nsb-imd). It allows users to visualize and sample, with atomic-level precision, the structures and dynamics of complex molecular...

[LBW] CHI2018 EA: An Initial Investigation into Non-visual Code Structure Overview Through Speech, Non-speech and Spearcons

Abstract: We investigate a novel, non-visual approach to overviewing object-oriented source code and evaluate the efficiency of different categories of sounds for the purpose of getting an overview of source code structure for a visually-impaired computer programmer. A user-study with ten sighted and three non-sighted participants compared the effectiveness of speech,...
