Year in Review and Outlook for 2023

New Way to See Digital Graphics via Internet Multimodal Access to Graphical Exploration (IMAGE)

Hello, IMAGE Community!

This is Cyan Kuo, Usability Research Lead of the IMAGE Project (https://image.a11y.mcgill.ca). Thank you again for all your help and support this past year.

Your contribution is critical to our research and we hope that we can continue to improve IMAGE so that you can enjoy graphics on the internet in a novel way.

To recap this past year, we're happy to now have:

  • released the extension publicly, including new prototype maps renderings and a refined charts experience (more of that in the new year)
  • presented our project at seven talks, conferences and conventions
  • conducted five studies, gathering data from thirty-six participants (thank you so much!)

Things we're working on and planning on releasing in 2023:

  • optical character recognition
  • Open Street Maps support with much more road information
  • new, more detailed charts experiences
  • initial groundwork for French support,
  • new machine learning for recognizing celebrities, clothing, and emotions

We have other exciting new developments and new studies in the new year.

We'll keep you in the loop!

Have a safe and happy holiday season. Wishing you all the best,

Cyan Kuo
