A design methodology for multimodal-controlled application has been developed using Wizard-of-Oz simulations as the principal mechanism for evaluating and getting input for dialogue design. This methodology may enable multimodal application developers to support dialogues that are optimal with respect to naturalness, especially on a pragmatic level, given the technical restrictions.
