comment Documentation - do we “Click”, “Push”, “Press” or “Select” a button on a touch-screen interface
@user43251 point being there is no right answer that is universal here. SE is a site where answers, ideally, are applicable in general, not specific to the individual. I suppose the universal answer in this situation is "use whatever your team wants to use, but be consistent"

@user43251 only to the OP.

comment Show that a higher or lower number is better
It has to be a) intuitive but also 1) one color 2) without text? Those are some pretty daunting requirements. I suppose that leaves you with iconography.

comment Do good UX guidelines exist against little JS windows inside the browser
I don't know that they would. They are essentially monopolies and if they're making money despite the UX, there is sadly no strong incentive for them to care about the UX. The problem is that the people that buy these huge software products are rarely the people that actually have to use, maintain, or develop on them.

comment Do good UX guidelines exist against little JS windows inside the browser
Sounds like you're talking about enterprise software along the lines of PeopleSoft and the like. The reality is that these are products that make a lot of money without having to care about UX. As such, they pretty much don't care about UX.

comment Is there an analysis tool for Interaction Design?
This is a little vague. Can you clarify what end result you are looking for is?

comment Good UX for inputting 14 different times
I'd look at all the calendar apps out there (Outlook, Google Calendar, iCal, etc.) as they all have this issue have have solved it in various ways already.

comment Percentage of screen readers users in USA?
So...in summary...I don't think one should ever have to 'sell' a client on accessibility, but, rather, it should be something the developers should promote as part of the value they are providing. It's more of a marketing bullet point than a line-item on the billing statement.

@norabora eh, I think that's true for legacy teams that aren't up to speed, but "knowing standards, ARIA, 508, etc" is 'writing correct HTML'.

comment Percentage of screen readers users in USA?
@AdrienBe unlike StackOverflow, where there are often very specific questions with very specific answers, topics such as UX tend to be much broader and, as such, will often produce answers that don't necessarily address the minute specifics of the original question--yet can still be very valid answers. (Also, a big part of UX is trying to determine what question should be asked--as often clients are asking the wrong question. :) )

comment How often should you redesign the user interface of a mobile app (non-consumer)?
You should redesign it when necessary.

comment Get people to read FAQ before contacting support
"The customer support form isn't even displayed here and in this way they encourage the customers to find a solution to their problem" = correction, in FRUSTRATES the customers as they try and hunt for the contact information. Also, error codes, while technically useful on the back end, mean nothing to the user and would be counter to 'plain language' best practices

comment Pagination Design
I'd ask: What is the content you are paginating? What is the value of jumping to, say, page '52'? Is this a data set that a user would typically need to dig deep into? If so, would they be able to determine that they need to get directly to page 52? My hunch is that this is a feature that, while nice, is over-designed as it may not be used all that much.

+1 For the last paragraph! If it's a common question...fix the experience that triggers the question! :)

comment Dark on light versus light on dark for command line and development tools
Oh, when you say 'kindle' are you referring to epaper? If so, then that's yet another entirely different variable at work here (projected light vs. reflected light)

comment Dark on light versus light on dark for command line and development tools
@epw the 'theme' has nothing to do with battery life--though the actual brightness setting of the device may.

comment Dark on light versus light on dark for command line and development tools
What makes them special is your own personal preferences. Nothing else. In terms of why people prefer one over the other, it's usually in combination with their work environment--namely the ambient light (or lac thereof).

comment Mobile. Long list to scroll, vs. collapsible trees
I'm confused as to how grouping reduces the length. Can you provide a visual?
