    The time is right for the emergence of widespread, desktop conferencing. Desktop conferencing uses communications networks and computer systems to support work between individuals. It merges video conferencing, teleconferencing, and the personal computer. It links together two or more people sitting at their desks and uses their workstations for immediate sharing of visual and audible information.... View full abstract»

    The ECHO (extraordinary computer human operation) project being carried out in conjunction with GEC Avionics, is concerned with the development of a multimodal workstation for `ordinary' and `extra-ordinary' human computer interaction. The main themes of the project are the increase of both input and output bandwidth by providing alternative input/output mechanisms for the user; the incorporation ... View full abstract»

    Multimedia systems have the power to involve users in rich interactions with diverse information. For interactions with complex, interrelated, bodies of information, hypermedia techniques can be employed to give the user non-linear access to the stored material. If a multimedia application is to offer the user more than this, for instance to provide advice, or help with a problem, then a more inte... View full abstract»

    Human computer interfaces which involve the use of multiple and redundant channels of communication will improve the quality and efficiency of interaction. In particular they will be easier to use for people with sensory disabilities (or at least should be simpler to adapt). Such interfaces must be designed on a media-independent basis. The author discusses these assumptions and outlines a case st... View full abstract»

    The author explains the terms multimedia, multi-modal and multi-modality and whether they convey important distinctions. Some of the technical developments which have given rise to the recent burgeoning of interest in this topic are outlined. The author then turns to cognitive psychology for some guidance about the effects on the user, before concluding with a personal view of what seems important... View full abstract»
