WebAIM: Screen Reader User Survey Results - 1 views

  •  
    "In October 2009, WebAIM conducted a survey of preferences of screen reader users. This was a follow-up survey to a previous survey. We received 665 valid responses to the screen reader user survey. More in-depth analysis and documentation on the free-form responses will be available in the future.

    A few disclaimers and notices:

    * Totals may not equal 100% due to rounding.
    * Total responses (n) for each question may not equal 665 due to respondents not answering that particular question.
    * The sample was not controlled and may not represent all screen reader users.
    * Care should be taken in interpreting these results. Responses are based upon user experiences with web content that is generally inaccessible. We cannot help but wonder if responses may have been different if screen reader interactions with web content were typically very positive.
    * Data was analyzed using JMP Statistical Discovery Software version 8
    * We hope to conduct a survey of this nature again in the future. If you have recommendations or questions you would like asked, please let us know. Additional analysis of this data and details on the responses to open-ended questions will be available in the future."

iA » What's Next in Web Design? - 5 views

  •  
    Thinking about what's next online is fun because everything you wish to come true will come true. While commercial products obey to the laws of the market, which in part are influenced by the resources needed to produce these products, the web is defined by the user. If the user wants something he will either get it or create it himself. To see beyond today's limits of the web all we need to do is see what is needed.

Scroll Magazine | It's time for content strategy by Melissa Rach - 2 views

  •  
    "As a web professional you are in the right place to become a content strategist. And now is the right time to do it.

    They say there's a time and a place for everything. I'm not sure who they are, but I was starting to think content strategy would prove them wrong. You see, despite the fact that we have been in the 'information age' since 1956 and riding on the 'information superhighway' since 1990, content never got much respect.

    Until now.

    These days, people (especially web people) are jumping on the content strategy bandwagon faster than hippies catching the bus to Woodstock. I know what you're thinking - web pundits have been annoying everybody with this 'content is king' business for 15 years and it never mattered before. Why should you care now?"

When Fancy Fonts Work | Neuromarketing - 3 views

  •  
    "Now that you followed my advice in Convince With Simple Fonts and eliminated complicated fonts from your websites and printed material, I'm going to tell you that there is one situation where fancy, hard to read fonts can actually work better than simple ones. If you are selling a costly product, describing it using a hard to read font will suggest to the viewer that more effort went into creating that product. As part of their ongoing cognitive fluency research, Hyunjin Song and Norbert Schwarz of the University of Michigan found that restaurant menus are one such case."

  • According to MarketingExperiments, there are three essential questions all pages must answer:
    Where Am I?
    What Can I Do Here?
    Why Should I Do It?

    “The chief enemy of forward momentum is confusion,”

  •  
    The most important thing a webpage can do is be crystal clear about exactly what you can do on that webpage.

Scrolling and Attention (Jakob Nielsen's Alertbox) - 2 views

  • Summary:
    Web users spend 80% of their time looking at information above the page fold. Although users do scroll, they allocate only 20% of their attention below the fold.

    In Web design, there's much confusion about the "page fold" concept and the importa

  • Summary:
    Web users spend 80% of their time looking at information above the page fold. Although users do scroll, they allocate only 20% of their attention below the fold.
  • you shouldn't ignore the fold and create endless pages for two reasons:

    • Long pages continue to be problematic because of users' limited attention span. People prefer sites that get to the point and let them get things done quickly. Besides the basic reluctance to read more words, scrolling is extra work.
      • The real estate above the fold is more valuable than stuff below the fold for attracting and keeping users' attention.
  • ...5 more annotations...
  • Scrolling beats paging because it's easier for users to simply keep going down the page than it is to decide whether or not to click through for the next page of a fragmented article
  • users will scroll below the fold only if the information above it makes them believe the rest of the page will be valuable
  • The end of a list's importance is further enhanced by the recency effect, which says that the last thing a person sees remains particularly salient in the mind.
  • It's as if users arrive at a page with a certain amount of fuel in their tanks. As they "drive" down the page, they use up gas, and sooner or later they run dry
  • Design Implications

    The implications are clear: the material that's the most important for the users' goals or your business goals should be above the fold. Users do look below the fold, but not nearly as much as they look above the fold.

    People will look very far down a page if (a) the layout encourages scanning, and (b) the initially viewable information makes them believe that it will be worth their time to scroll.

    Finally, while placing the most important stuff on top, don't forget to put a nice morsel at the very bottom

Mega Drop-Down Navigation Menus Work Well (Jakob Nielsen's Alertbox) - 2 views

  • the mega drop-down menu — tested well enough that I want to encourage its wider use
  • Mega drop-downs show everything at a glance, so users can see rather than try to remember
  • Mega-drop-downs let you visually emphasize relationships among items.
  • ...20 more annotations...
  • Mega drop-downs make it easy to use icons and pictures when appropriate. And, even if you stick to text alone, you have richer typography at your disposal (letting you differentiate link sizes according to their importance, for example)
  • Interface elements must render within 0.1 seconds to suggest physicality and make users feel like a display's changes are a direct result of their actions.
  • the diagonal problem, which happens when the path temporarily takes the pointer outside the active area. The drop-down shouldn't disappear when the user is on the way to point to something within it.
  • The main grouping guidelines are:
  • Chunk options into related sets
  • Keep a medium level of granularity
  • Use concise, yet descriptive labels for each group
  • Order the groups.
  • Show each choice only once.
  • Keep Megas Simple
  • avoid GUI widgets and other interface elements that involve more advanced interaction than simply click-to-go
  • Mega drop-downs are a fleeting screen presence and shouldn't replace dialog boxes, which are the natural home for more complex interactions and can support them better
  • Fewer options mean less to scan, less to understand, and less to get wrong.
  • Accessibility
  • screen readers
  • Even if coded correctly, mega drop-downs can cause problems for low-vision users who use screen magnifiers to enlarge tiny portions of the screen.
  • tiny selectable items hurts touchscreen users
  • two main approaches to improving the accessibility of mega drop-down menus:
  • make each top-level menu choice clickable, leading to a regular Web page where you present all drop-down options in plain, fully accessible HTML
  • Emulate the "keytips"
  •  
    Big, two-dimensional drop-down panels group navigation options to eliminate scrolling and use typography, icons, and tooltips to explain the user's choices.
