Title: "Toward Inclusive and Accessible Self-Tracking"
Abstract: We envision new ways of supporting self-tracking that are inclusive of and beneficial to marginalized people with diverse tracking needs. In this talk, we will present a set of research projects that examined the tracking needs of diverse groups and employed novel approaches to design personal informatics tools. We incorporated multimodal interaction, such as speech and touch, to help people collect rich data with a low burden and to provide people with new experiences interacting with data. We will also discuss promising avenues in personal informatics and personal data contexts where multimodal and personalized tracking approaches can support a broad range of individuals—self-trackers, older adults, stroke survivors, and blind and low-vision people—to achieve their diverse and unique tracking goals.
