Accordion Summarization for End-Game Browsing on PDAs and Cellular Phones

Buyukkokten, Orkut and Garcia-Molina, Hector and Paepcke, Andreas (2000) Accordion Summarization for End-Game Browsing on PDAs and Cellular Phones. Technical Report. Stanford InfoLab. (Publication Note: Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI 2001), Seattle, Washington, March 31-April 5, 2001)




We demonstrate a new browsing technique for devices with small displays such as PDAs or cellular phones. We concentrate on end-game browsing, where the user is close to or on the target page. We make browsing more efficient and easier by Accordion Summarization. In this technique the Web page is first represented as a short summary. The user can then drill down to discover relevant parts of the page. If desired, keywords can be highlighted and exposed automatically. We discuss our techniques, architecture, interface facilities, and the result of user evaluations. We measured a 57% improvement in browsing speed and 75% reduction in input effort.
