Most current interfaces on desktop computers, tablets or smartphones are based on visual information. In particular, graphical user interfaces on computers are based on files, folders, windows, and icons, manipulated on a virtual desktop. This article presents an ongoing project on multimodal interfaces, which may lead to promising improvements for computers' interfaces. These interfaces intend to ease the interaction with computers for blind or visually impaired people. We plan to interview blind or visually impaired users, to understand how they currently use computers, and how a new kind of flexible interface can be designed to meet their needs. We intend to apply our findings to the general public, to design adapted multimodal interfaces that do not always require visual attention.
