10 Practical Insights from UX Research

Contextual Inquiry Interviews

What they are • Observing users in their environment • Listening and asking questions • Audio recording and taking notes

What they’re good for • Learning different ways people work • Understanding issues people encounter • Identifying opportunities for improvement

How we use the results • Informing the audit test plan • Providing first-person perspective on issues • Presenting issues not identified in audit

1. Wear walking shoes and be ready to go to participants http://www.photos-public-domain.com

2. Offer your elbow as a guide for blind participants http://www.wikihow.com/Walk-With-a-Blind-Person

3. Take notes and have multiple modes for recording

4. Consider the full context for opportunities for improvement http://blueoutdoor.com

Usability Studies

What they are • Observing users working through tasks • Listening, guiding, and asking questions • Understanding the intent behind behaviors • Video recording and taking notes

What they’re good for • Learning different ways people work • Identifying accessibility barriers • Identifying elements that impede success

How we use the results • Identifying usability and accessibility issues • Providing first-person perspective on issues • Building awareness and understanding

5. Partner with advocacy and support organizations

6. Make sure participants have reliable transportation http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Ride_(MBTA)

7. Send documents in advance and bring a signature guide http://www.rentbyownerguide.com

The fact that [company] is doing this exercise makes me optimistic for the future. I want to thank [company] for their willingness to even explore accessibility issues. 10. People appreciate efforts to improve accessibility

10 Design Insights from UX Research

1. Consistent control locations help non-visual touchscreen users

2. Complex tables are difficult to track when magnified

3. Print matters, too—printed versions should support large print

4. Critical information should not be on the right side of the screen

5. Setting focus is disorienting when using screen magnification

6. Overlays can be difficult to distinguish when magnified

7. Text entry is more difficult than selecting from predefined values…

…except on an iPhone with Siri

8. Swipe gestures don’t work consistently with VoiceOver

9. Layouts with grouped elements work well when magnified
