Abstract

The proliferation of ubiquitous computing is changing the way Web based information is accessed. As wireless computing devices, such as Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), Smartphones and mobile phones, become smaller and possess sufficient processing power to handle a variety of functions, the conventional unimodal input via minuscule keypads and styluses becomes impractical as a means of interaction. The first objective of this research paper is to assert multimodal interaction as an alternative and effective approach for accessing Web-based information on mobile devices. The second objective is to propose a Multimodal Document Development Framework to guide the development of multimodal Web-based information systems specific to mobile agents. In validating the effectiveness of such interaction and development framework, a prototype called The Multimodal Library Information System is developed and implemented.
