Descripción
Universal web navigation fairly represents real penetration of the Information Society. However, widespread interfaces are still based on keyboard or mouse interaction which do not facilitate internet utilization for all. Multimodal interfaces are usually aimed to understand better what the user wants and are able to do. They can also be useful to facilitate access to ICT for a wide variety of people, with functional diversity. Accessibility usually implies expensive devices oriented to a specific disability. This article discusses and proposes the design and integration of a multimodal device oriented to disabled and non disabled users in a scenario such as internet navigation. Starting from an ongoing implementation experience, this paper studies the characteristics to be included in order to foster multimodal interactivity "for all". The low cost Nintendo Wii Remote has been reviewed in different scenarios, some originals, some based on previous works, and has been turned out to be a very versatile device which can bring critical help in a multimodal scenario. Web browsing was then deeply validated as an application to be integrated with the proposed system.
