Why not let the user decide? I'd simply have a toggle that enables/disables the auto repeat feature. I see two use cases: Someone is wanting a quick review of things that they have just learned (autorepeat is not really needed) Someone is learning new vocabulary and needs to absorb the nuances of each sign (autorepeat is very useful) I believe it would ...

A 1 or 2 seconds video is really short; and looping it will make it look like it is stuttering. I suggest create a longer video showing the sign 2, 3 times; with different camera angles (if possible). have a repeat/replay button easily accessible.

From personal experience, I can comfortably watch a 2 second gif repeatedly, if and only if the transition from end to start is quite smooth. If you are working with computer generated models: Perhaps the hands could return to the default position after they finish. If you are working with content you can't influence: Perhaps you can add a fade out of the ...

Do not have the video on repeat by default; if a repeat option is offered to the user or if the sign is repeated within the video itself, make sure it's completely obvious when the sign starts and when it ends. Some signs repeat parts of the sign. Do not confuse users into thinking a sign must be repeated by repeating it.

I'll agree with you, showing errors one by one could be really annoying and might have a negative impact on your business or users. A form is like a conversation with your users. Why not be a great communicator and use inline form validation that's delivered at the right place and at the right time? For example, take a look at Twitter's sign up form: In ...

Avoid having a jump cut from the end of the video to the start without anything to indicate that's what's happening. Starting with a freeze-frame and a caption, then letting the animation play, and then having a freeze-frame which dissolves quickly (e.g. 0.1 second) back to the first freeze-frame+caption combo will make it very clear where the loop is, and ...

This seems like a case where you could employ progressive disclosure to hide some of the elements until they're needed. For instance, you could hide the filter controls by default, revealing them when users make the decision to "filter." (Usually that decision is represented by a button or dropdown control.) download bmml source – Wireframes ...

The problem with patterns is that it’s hard to stand out when you’re doing the same thing everyone else is doing. But you don’t want to deviate too far from functionality with something as important as navigation. You need to find that sweet spot right between familiarity and creativity. While thinking outside the box is usually a good idea, but there are ...

Assume that you are deleting entire folder containing 3 (just random) files. Let us name them file-1, file-2, file-3. Now consider file-1 is in use, so system could not permit your request to delete that file, while remaining files(file-2 & file-3) are not being used currently. So in this case when the process of deleting entire folder starts it will ...

Continue means to keep retrying, this might run the risk of the current operation being a blocker for the remaining operations in the queue. Skip means to skip this operation and proceed to the next task in the queue.

You want your users to pass validation as soon as possible and in as few attempts as possible. If I understood your option 1 correctly, you're talking about providing on-the-fly validation for server errors. Purely in terms of UX this would be the best solution because it helps to achieve the goal above. It is however perfectly legitimate to say that that's ...

First option is much more explanatory for the user. I would use some blank slate that describes the cause (why the table is empty, who & when erased it) and possible actions that can be undertaken (Undo, Import of new data). If your product allows to manually fill in the table, you need some empty rows at the beginning, with option to add more of them. ...

The first question is "Do you need either of those buttons?" "Back" is a universally-available browser control. There is no need to replicate existing browser functionality inside your interface -- at best it'll be redundant, at worst it's a source of confusion (is it going to act exactly like the browser 'back' button, or do something different? does it ...

To restate what others have said: There's nothing wrong with looping but Don't do a hard loop. Have an in-between. Idea 1: Run the 2 sec video and hold on the last frame. Quick cross fade to a text sign "Boat.", for 2 seconds. Quick cross back to the first frame of the video. Run the vid - repeat. Idea 2: Run the 2 sec video. Hold on the last frame. ...

The task of a label is to unambiguously identify the meaning of the value associated. The task of a label is not to be consistently worded with all other labels on the screens (and this probably reveals my preference :-). But apart from anyone's preferences (be it UXD, QA, or DEV), the ultimate benchmark is the user. Ask 10 potential users of the software ...

One thing that is missing and you should have is - information on total number of pages available. In your screen shot user does not know how many pages there are when the grid loads. Knowing that information is good but you still need validation. I suggest an alternate solution. I think this is simpler UI , no explicit go to buttons , it keeps controls ...

Did you consider using other ways to select a page number? One of the challenges of allowing a person to type into a field is they may not even type a number, so you will need to consider all sorts of other types of data entry field validation. If you use an alternate way for selecting the page, which doesn't involve typing, then the person cannot enter ...

Another **possible fix ** could be just swap the position of the form in the second case (where few addresses are already there). And make the entire address chunk/div clickable with different prominent states (hover, selected). Also you can change the visual style of showing it as possible options(in this case the position of the radio button). In the ...

The design as you show it assumes people want to add multiple shipping addresses and then choose one for the current order. I think this is not the typical use case. Adding a new shipping address is needed only if it is not yet in the list of existing addresses: Either this is the first shipment, or the current order should go somewhere else. Having this ...

You can ask the user to name the address by something at the end of the check out. So that for the next purchase, s/he can directly select the address from a drop down. In case of new address a specific and prominent button will be present with "Add New" label.
