A Graphical UIDL Editor for Multimodal Interaction Design Based on SMUIML
We present the results of an investigation on software support for the SMUIML multimodal user interaction description language. In particular, we introduce a graphical UIDL editor for the creation of SMUIML scripts. The presented graphical editor is fully based on SMUIML for the representation of the underlying data as well as for the dialogue modelling. Due to the event-centered nature of SMUIML, the representation of the multimodal dialogue modelling in the graphical SMUIML dialogue editor has been realised via a state machine. The editor further offers a real-time graphical debugging tool. Compared to existing multimodal dialogue editors, the SMUIML graphical editor offers a dual graphical and textual editing as well as a number of operators for the temporal combination of modalities.
