GUI Navigator/Cover: GUI Transformation Systems for PC Novice Users

One usability problem of current GUI applications on PCs is that, because of the complexity of their GUIs, interaction sequences are not clear enough for novice PC users to properly complete their tasks without pre-learning the applications. This paper proposes two GUI systems, "GUI Navigator" and "GUI Cover," for solving this problem. The essence of these systems is to read GUI screens, by using a GUI accessibility method, in order to detect what windows and widgets are shown on the current screen.
