We present a multimodal media center interface based on speech input, gestures, and haptic feedback. For special user groups, including visually and physically impaired users, the application features a zoomable context + focus GUI in tight combination with speech output and full speech-based control. These features have been developed in cooperation with representatives of the user groups. Evaluations of the system with regular users have been conducted and results from a study where subjective evaluations were collected show that the performance and user experience of speech input were very good, similar to results from a ten month public pilot use.
