user experience; accessibility; emotions

This STS on user experience and emotions for accessibility is targeted towards the elaboration on the topics of user experience and affective computing approaches and their relation to accessibility of electronic content. Accessible design as crucial condition for disabled users to get access to electronic content, which is also beneficial for non-disabled users, e.g. because of adaptability of information presentation accessing web services via smartphones. Accessibility so far pays less attention to user experience or emotional aspects of interaction, though they are important factors for disabled persons in similar way as for non-disabled persons. Additional to accessibility, considering user experience and emotional aspects of user interfaces would help disabled users for example to easily and efficiently use information systems and overcome communication disorders. Concepts for support of emotional interaction can on the other side increase the usability of electronic services for disabled users.
