Abstract:We live in a multicultural world. We need to learn how to communicate with each other, sometimes even without words, using only gestures. To help people better communicate in multicultural epoch the German company Fragenstellerin developed the gesture dictionary application on an iOS platform. To cover the bigger population of users, the next step for Fragenstellerin is to bring the Gestunary gesture dictionary application to Android platform. In this Master Thesis, I am designing an innovative search interface for the Android Gesture Dictionary. I am applying user-centered design method to the very popular modern industrial task of moving applications from one platform to another. In the first five chapters, I analyze the user interface of the iOS Gestunary solution, collect user’s reflections, research similar products, and gesture coding schemes. In the rest of the chapters, my work deals with the analysis of the vision of potential users of the Gestunary application. Finally, I research user preferences for gesture illustrations and perform a feasibility study of automatic gesture recognition. As the main result, I developed an innovative search interface for the Gestunary application.
