Abstract Users of multimodal systems have to choose between different interaction strategies. Thereby the number of interaction steps to solve a task can vary across the available modalities. In this work we introduce such a task and present empirical data that shows that strategy selection of users is affected by modality specific shortcuts. The system under investigation offered touch screen and speech as input modalities. We introduce a first version of an ACT-R model that uses the architectures-inherent mechanisms production compilation and utility learning to identify modality-specific shortcuts. A simple task analysis is implemented in declarative memory. The model reasonably accurate matches the human data. In our further work we will try to get a better fit by extending the model with further influence factors of modality selection like speech recognition errors. Further the model will be refined concerning the cognitive processes of speech production and touch screen interaction.
