Title: Design and evaluation of a new user interface for text proofreading portals
Pietro Murano is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at OsloMet. His specialization is Human Computer Interaction and Usability. This presentation will consist of an introduction to his research and then concentrate on recent work concerning the design and evaluation of a new user interface for proofreading portals. There is a movement in the world to digitize all old documents and works. Part of the process involves human proofreaders checking digitized versions of old texts and making corrections to errors found. Human proofreaders use dedicated online portals for this purpose. However, these online portals lack somewhat in usability. The redesigned user interface aims to improve usability and proofreading accuracy.
