Addressing User Diversity
Current research on SUI design for children [e.g. 60, 90] targets children of a wide age range and the SUIs are optimised and adapted to general user group characteristics. However, in particular young users undergo relatively fast changes in cognitive, fine motor and other abilities . Design requirements change rapidly as well and a flexible modification of the SUI is needed. Furthermore, the abilities of a particular child may be different from those of another child of the same age. This imposes a further requirement on the search user interface. The search user interface has to cover the needs of individual young users. We called this challenge the diversity support (see Section 7.1).
