Ability-based optimization is a computational approach for improving interface designs for users with sensorimotor and cognitive impairments. Designs are created by an optimizer, evaluated against task-specific cognitive models, and adapted to individual abilities. The approach does not necessitate extensive data collection and could be applied both automatically and manually by users, designers, or caretakers. As a first step, the authors present optimized touchscreen layouts for users with tremor and dyslexia that potentially improve text-entry speed and reduce error.
