Tooltips assist users to understand icons better. When hovering over an icon with the cursor, a short text description of the icon appears. Text-based tooltips are helpful for users without any literacy limitations . This project therefore generalizes tooltips for users with low text literacy due to disabilities and impairments with the use of video and audio tooltips for the Mozilla Firebox Browser. As a case study to explore such generalization, video based tooltips will show short South African Sign Language clips to assist those who use South African Sign Language as a mother tongue. When the user hovers over an icon, a video will appear with a short description of the icon in South African Sign Language. We intend to abstract tooltips to also provide audio-based tooltips, for users with language barriers, reading disabilities and those who are visually impaired. When hovering over an icon, a short audio description of the icon will play. Both audio and South African Sign Language video based tooltips will be prerecorded. Through a web extension called Tooltip Assist, users will be able to select a tooltip preference for their Mozilla Firefox Browser for audio-based or video-based tooltips. This web extension will provide audio-based and video-based tooltips for the eleven default tooltips of the Mozilla Firefox browser and will serve as a help guide for users to gain an understanding of what function a specific button performs.
