Abstract

This paper describes the user interface design, and subsequent usability evaluation of assistive technology to support elderly and disabled people in their interaction with kitchen appliances in their homes. We have applied the four design principles of simplicity, consistency, universality and familiarity to a range of devices that can be used within the home environment. Our evaluations suggest that this approach has been successful.
