Theses from the Multimodal Interaction Group

Here are Masters and PhD theses produced by members of the group. The list is small but growing! To view the PDF files you need Adobe's free PDF viewer or the PDF plugin for Netscape or Internet Explorer. This is much better at preserving the formatting than HTML. If you have sight problems or just want to read the PDF files as HTML then you can use the Adobe Accessibility tools. If you have any comments then let me know. If you ask me nicely I might send you other formats.
