Barrie et al,

"Off-the-shelf designs are especially frustrating for the disabled, the
elderly and anybody who has trouble controlling a mouse. A new approach to
design, developed at the University of Washington, would put each person

abilities. A paper describing the system, which for the first time offers
an instantly customizable approach to user interfaces, was presented today
in Chicago at a meeting of the Association for the Advancement of
Artificial Intelligence."
