SceneGate Improvements

Cognitive load



  • simplified mode was developed for beginners. It is the default mode. 
  • This mode provides only controls needed to attend meetings and classes.
  • Thus the "steep learning curve" is left for when it is needed.
  • An Extended mode is available for experienced users.

Voice 

  • Hear voice equally from all positions (default=On)
  • Voice on (mic off) at start.
  • We can instruct new people in voice immediately. 
  • People with hearing problems need not cope with changing volume. 
  • TBD: Secure voice connections.

Vision

  • Wide range of color options for the UI. 
  • Instructions TBD

Performance

  • Dynamic texture loading times were greatly reduced. 

Grid Manager

  • Error checking for added URI blocks nonexistent addresses.
  • User is advised of error. 

Button grouping

  • Functional button grouping is the default.
  • Left: User's account
  • Right: Going places
  • Bottom: Frequently-used tools

  1. This will help so many individuals, I have a visual disturbance that causes me to see things "crooked" so if I build something correctly I have to adjust it to look correct for my vision, I need lots of help building in-world. A bit distorted :) Cannot use Mouselook at all. One day maybe they will have a viewer to compensate. Very interesting article.
