New Lab MemberPublished: Tuesday, 04 September 2007
Andy Brown recently joins the HCW Lab.He will be working on the EPSRC funded SASWAT project.
Andy finished his PhD in the AIG group, University of Manchester, where he investigated the use of annotation to enable non-visual access to graph-based diagrams. The SASWAT project will allow independently updating Web 2.0 micro contents (AJAX, iFrames, XForms, etc.) to be accessible to disabled users. Andy will be exploring the types of dynamic updates users encounter, and investigating, based on our psychology research, how requests sent between the webpage and its server can be interpreted to provide useful dynamic information to the user.
