In communication settings, statistical graphs accompany language by providing visual access to various aspects of domain entities, such as conveying information about trends. A similar and comparable means for providing perceptual access is to provide haptic graphs for blind people. In this study, we present the results of an experimental study that aimed to investigate visual line graphs and haptic line graphs in time domain by means of gesture production as an indicator of event conceptualization. The participants were asked to produce single sentence summaries of visual graphs and haptic graphs. The gestures that were produced during the course of verbal descriptions were analyzed. The results showed that directional gestures accompanied verbal descriptions of both visual graphs and haptic graphs. Further analyses revealed differences between visual graphs and haptic graphs in terms of type of gestures, as well as the production rates.

Estimation of partially observed multiple graph signals by learning spectrally concentrated graph kernels
Turhan, Gülce; Vural, Elif; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2021-3-31)
Graph models provide flexible tools for the representation and analysis of signals defined over domains such as social or sensor networks. However, in real applications data observations are often not available over the whole graph, due to practical problems such as broken sensors, connection loss, or storage problems. In this thesis, we study the problem of estimating partially observed graph signals on multiple graphs. We consider possibly multiple graph domains over which a set of signals is available wi...
Towards designing audio assistance for comprehending haptic graphs A multimodal perspective
DENİZ, OZAN; MEHMETCAN, FAL; Acartürk, Cengiz (2013-07-31)
Statistical graphs, such as line graphs are widely used in multimodal communication settings. Language accompanies graphs and humans produce gestures during the course of communication. For visually impaired people, haptic-audio interfaces provide perceptual access to graphical representations. The local and sequential character of haptic perception introduces limitations in haptic perception of hard-to-encode information, which can be resolved by providing audio assistance. In this article we first present...
Gestures in communication through line graphs
Özge, Alaçam; Christopher, Habel; Acartürk, Cengiz (null; 2012-08-31)
Line graphs are widely used in communication settings, for conveying information about states and processes that unfold in time. The communication is achieved by the contribution of other modalities than graphs, such as language and gestures. In a set of experimental investigations, we analyzed the production and comprehension of gestures during communication through line graphs. The findings reveal a systematic use of gestures as well as the limitations of cognitive resources due to the split of attention ...
ESTIMATION OF TIME VARYING GRAPH SIGNALS WITH GRAPH ARMA PROCESSES
Güneyi, Eylem Tuğçe; Vural, Elif; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2021-9-8)
Graph models provide efficient tools for analyzing data defined over irregular domains such as social networks, sensor networks, and transportation networks. Real-world graph signals are usually time-varying signals. The characterization of the joint behavior of time-varying graph signals in the time and the vertex domains has recently arisen as an interesting research problem, contrasted to the independent processing of graph signals acquired at different time instants. The concept of wide sense stationari...
Verbally assisted haptic graph comprehension The role of taking initiative in a joint activity
Deniz, Ozan; Mehmetcan, Fal; Acartürk, Cengiz (2014-08-31)
Statistical graphs are tools for multimodal communication in daily life settings. For visually impaired people, haptic interfaces provide perceptual access to the information provided by the graph. Haptic comprehension is facilitated by audio and verbal assistance. We investigate the circumstances under which verbal assistance facilitates haptic comprehension of graphs. For this, we focus on cases where unaided haptic graph comprehension has limitations, such as when describing a global (rather than a local...
