Persuasive Intent
To facilitate distributed communication in mobile settings, GazeNote is developed for creating and sharing gaze annotations in head mounted displays (HMDs). With gaze annotations it possible to point out objects of interest within an image and add a verbal description. To create an annotation, the user simply captures an image using the HMD’s camera, looks at an object of interest in the image, and speaks out the information to be associated with the object. The gaze location is recorded and visualized with a marker. The voice is transcribed using speech recognition. Gaze annotations can be shared. Our study showed that users found that gaze annotations add precision and expressive- ness compared to annotations of the image as a whole.
