comment What is the best way to approach usability testing an intranet?
@Andrew: I don't agree in general that formal usability testing in formal environments brings better results. I do agree that formal methods are important, as a checklist on what should be looked for. Yet I also believe a formal setting has a research bias: you have to watch your users in an as informal environment as possible. Early stress tests with blood pressure/pulse meters were unreliable, as it made people uncomfortable. So I opt for a more informal, friendly "interface" towards the user when doing the testing, rather than making sure everything is lab-clean - reality isn't.

comment Are increase and decrease arrows redundant on scrollbars?
@Henry: no, I guess she does scrolling on a vertical way, but never uses sliding controls, like, sidewise scroll ("swipe") to go to a different menu, or sliding locks, etc.

comment Absolute vs. Relative mapping interface
I don't really understand if the distance is in pixels or centimeters: my laptop has a physical width of 36 centimeters, and it has a horizontal resolution of 1440 px. This ratio of 40 px per centimeter gives us a physical width of 55 cm for a 2200px screen. So the big question is, would people benefit from touch drag'n'drop on a 15 inch screen or not?

comment Interesting ways you can provide a client with feedback from user testing?
@Andrew: in my practice, working in Europe for big companies, the client involvenment you describe belongs to the realm of science fiction unfortunately. Yes, it would be great, just as world peace, but it's utopistic and it needs your personal charm or whatever just to make them understand that users matter. The usual case is that they pay but don't care, and completely disregard user testing results

Added typography as a tag as word spacing is a typographical topic.
