Abstract

Accessing the smallest targets in mainstream interfaces using gaze alone is difficult, but interface tools that effectively increase the size of selectable objects can help. In this paper, we propose a conceptual framework to organize existing tools and guide the development of new tools. We designed a discrete zoom tool and conducted a proof-of-concept experiment to test the potential of the framework and the tool. Our tool was as fast as and more accurate than the currently available two-step magnification tool. Our framework shows potential to guide the design, development, and testing of zoom tools to facilitate the accessibility of mainstream interfaces for gaze users.
