Interaction will be enhanced by a combination of speech and gesture, allowing user query formulation in an economical and natural manner. Output tools will plan the presentation of the best media combination while preserving user choice over output content and delivery format. A linking data dictionary will form the underlying environment for the tools by providing a hypermedia-based layer of information description which implements access to storage devices.
