Att Bredda Läsupplevelsen på Mobiltelefoner genom Gyroskopiska Interaktioner : En Utforskande Designstudie (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

This thesis is an explorative study aimed at the possibility of integrating tilt-based input to improve the reading experience on smartphones. Previous works from the early 2000s have been skeptical towards tilt-based navigation, deeming it unruly and imprecise. To investigate if today’s technology has unlocked new possibilities; two experimental reading methods were designed, created and tested iteratively on 20, respectively 18 participants. The first method is a reassessment of tilt-based auto-scrolling and the second is a novel approach comparable to tilt-based paging. Data from the reading sessions were collected quantitatively in tandem with qualitative data from post-session interviews. The results indicate good potential and a reading performance similar to the standard navigation method. The importance of accommodating people with different reading behaviours was also discussed.

Abstract [sv]

Detta examensarbete utforskar om gyroskopiska interaktioner kan användas för att förbättra läsupplevelsen på mobiltelefoner. Tidigare forskning från det tidiga 2000-talet har varit skeptiska mot gyroskopisk navigation, på grund av dålig precision och stabilitet. För att utforska om dagens teknologi har öppnat nya möjligheter; skapades, designades och testades två experimentella läsmetoder på 20 respektive 18 deltagare. Den första metoden är en återkoppling till tidigare forskning medans den andra utforskar ett nytt sätt som liknar gyroskopisk sidindelning. Data från läs sessionerna samlades i både kvantitativ och kvalitativ form, varav den senare med semistrukturerade intervjuer. Resultaten indikerar god potential och en läsprestanda som liknar den standardiserade läsmetoden. Vikten av att tillgodose människors individuella läsningsbeteende blev också diskuterat.
