Etude de l'usage de la parole dans les interfaces multimodales

Abstract : The goal of this thesis is to consider the issues related to speech introduction in multimodal human-machine interfaces. To determine and establish the problems and constraints of specification, which can make human-machine communication to maximum efficiency. The study is concentrated on the user to find what impacts exist when using multiple communication channels in human-machine interaction. Main issues covered the usage of multimodality, the implementation of multimodal human-machine interfaces and the usability of multimodality. Experimental methods were tested on 34 users, who performed two simulations. First, in inter-human interaction, as a simulation of the human-computer interface. Second, in real human-computer communication environment, using a multimodal interface. These experiments where aimed at studying what we can be achieved by using a multimodal interface and to determine its limitations. A second experimental study will be aimed at the usability of a multimodal interface in real live applications. Studying the behavior of the users in relation to the facilities used, the environment, and the performance of the real multimodal interface in this situation. Finally, using the experimental methods and a cognitive model of the human user, this thesis is aimed to prove that the use of multimodality involves a certain time overhead, due to the effects of the concurrent use of human communication channels.
