It is the dream of a single user interface which addresses and understands all human senses for communication that drives the research field of multimodal
user interfaces. The utilization of a single human sense for communication in an interface is referred to as modality (i.e. speech, gesture). Multimodal interfaces are a subset of natural user interfaces, which are in turn meant to replace the well–known WIMP paradigm used in many graphical user interfaces by making the interaction between a user and a computer more natural and intuitive.
