comment How Long Does a Usability Study Take from Start to Finish?
Paul, thanks for your thoughts. I'm looking for information that backs up the findings of the NN/g that states "It takes 39 hours to usability test a website the first time you try. This time estimate includes planning the test, defining test tasks, recruiting test users, conducting a test with five users, analyzing the results, and writing the report. With experience, Web user tests can be completed in two work days." With estimating just about anything, the typical answer of "it depends" certainly applies, I'm just looking for estimates based on experience. Thanks!

I think your second option is the ideal scenario, and one I've thought of myself (having played a lot of video games this resonates with me). We have two main challenges with this, the technology and the content. We're a small UX team that also handles the front-end development (we have dedicated software engineers in UX for that, it's awesome) and I think we can pull it off, but the content is going to require a long-term commitment from subject matter experts. Overall, this reassures my long-term thoughts, but I like to get as many options as possible.

It's a good thought, but we've noticed our users don't look to the status bar for information. Admittedly, we don't really use the status bar for status information, either. We use it for access to common commands. Our design patterns are very outdated as this is a 30 year old piece of DOS software that has been "ported," in the loosest sense of the term, to Windows. And to clarify, we are currently using a popup when the user enters a function that explains what they can do, and that popup changes as they interact with the function.
