A tool for capturing essential preferences

View publication


For some people, interaction preference settings like large fonts or speech output are essential for technology access. We demonstrate a 'First Discovery Tool' intended as an easy and accessible way for people to discover and set preferences to address major access barriers. The tool is designed to support people who have limited technology experience or confidence. Testing in educational and senior settings found that most participants were able to understand the preferences offered, and some discovered helpful options they were previously not aware of.
