Abstract in Undetermined

We devised a measure based on predictions of a conversation partner's opinion in order to approximate

communicative success in an unrestricted conversation with or without access to visual information.

We validated this prediction-based measure against our intuitions that participants would have lower

prediction errors in conversations where the participants rated that they contributed more and were

more engaged in. Our results show that visual information in the form of images accompanying the

conversation topics decreased the prediction errors of the participants, but only for images that were

rated as helpful.
