comment Breaking down tedious processes
This seems like a perfectly clear cut question to me. Its also quite an important question as you don't want your users getting fed up with entering too much data and just giving up.

comment Do average users expect the Esc key to work on websites?
I think to clarify this: ESC is used where there isn't any navigation at all using a website (such as full screen video) - its also a gaming standard for 'close'.

comment Are Visual Programming Interfaces effective for non-tech users?
I'd say easier for easy tasks and harder for hard tasks - Here's Lego's VP language for 7 year olds (based on Labview) preview.tinyurl.com/ktblndl

comment How to analyse user survey results
This a quite a common problem - a qualitative survey can produce a lot of very useful information and if you categorise you'll get some basic descriptive statistics ( % doing x versus % doing y etc ). However you will also understand a lot more about your users.

comment How to analyse user survey results
Next time you do this try doing a small sample survey so that the full survey is focussed around issues you have already identified. It makes analysis easier as the larger survey is providing more data on the issues you've already identified.

comment What is easy to perceive? Width or height?
There are formal conventions on how to graph data - so users will be used to the formats shown above.

comment The usefulness of home appliances sound notification?
Its a good question: there are nice non bugging kind of sounds and there are 'notice me now' sounds like the smoke alarm. So clearly getting both the kind of sound and the volume of sound correct does matter on a device.

comment What are the typical best practices for handling reporting/flagging inappropriate content on a social/UGC site?
It'd probably be helpful if the question pinned down the kind of inappropriate content: spam is pretty easy to spot and would be dealt with in one way; inappropriate content from real users needs dealing with in a more sensitive way as you really want to keep your users but just pursuade them not to post certain stuff.

comment Explaining Wireframes to Remote Clients Sent via Email?
Its a good UX question. I've had to do this. And as noted below I did quite a lot of talking it through on the phone as well.

comment What techniques and software can be used to minimize replicate information on a website or book?
Sorry, I didn't get that content control is all down to you. If its all down to you and you get those situations where an item of information could equally go in either cluster A or cluster B - really you want to put it where your users are most likely to look for it. And sometimes you just end up cross referencing between two places on the site if they are both similarly logically likely. Doing Card Sorting with users will find out which 'heading' they are most likely to file an item under.

comment Idea to enhance the UX and the legibility of an internship report
I've added "documentation" as a tag although I think maybe "document design" is a better tag name if someone has the power to create it: document design is a specific UX area and designing hard copy information is different from software interfaces.
