This paper presents a study that explores the issues of mobile multimodal interactions while on the move in the real world. Because multimodal interfaces allow new kinds of eyes and hands free interactions, usability issues while moving through different public spaces becomes an important issue in user experience and acceptance of multimodal interaction. This study focuses on these issues by deploying an RSS reader that participants used during their daily commute every day for one week. The system allows users on the move to access news feeds eyes free through head- phones playing audio and speech and hands free through wearable sensors attached to the wrists.
