Abstract: This paper describes a user-centered approach to Multimedia Software System (MSS) aimed at satisfying requirements of end-user computing. MSS design and development explicitly accounts for their capabilities of capturing and producing textual, pictorial, sound and haptic events and for the requirements of empowering users in the execution of their tasks and preventing them from getting lost in the multimedia virtual space and from the consequences of their incorrect operations. It will also describe implementation of different systems such as an extensible multimedia system, a multimedia visual information seeking environment, a multimedia system based on a real-time extension of Estelle, a web-based multimedia course, and a multimedia information system for bridge safety.
