Using Language as an Accessibility Tool: A System for Natural Language Interaction with Graphs over the Web

Leo Ferres, Petro Verkhogliad, Gitte Lindgaard

Graphical information (such as line graphs, bar charts, etc.) are not readily available for people using mobile devices and for people who are blind or have some other visual impairments. In this paper, we report on both a general-purpose architecture to implement Natural Language Interfaces (NLIs) and an implementation of that architecture, the iGraph system, which allows for description and exploration of these data graphs by an NLI.
