comment How do you describe what you do?
...Anyway, how do you know that you have created a great experience? Well, by evaluating and measuring the users experienced experience and comparing the results to the desired ux requirements. Right? If it doesn't measure up, then redesign. Repeat. (I don't buy the "I just know, a priori"-attitude) This process is the core nature of iterative design and usability engineering. I would pretty much call that quality assurance related to the ease of use...

comment How do you describe what you do?
... Now, I must add that my background is "usability", which has a slightly different focus than UX (you probably know ISO 9241-110 (and the deprecated ISO 9241-11) and ISO 9241-210 definitions), so the the "ease of use" part might be adjusted. But I think "ease of use" is the essence that John and Jane Doe cares about.

comment How do you describe what you do?
@Glen: First of all, explaining "UX" is not easy (and this is what the OP wants suggestions on). I've found that it is easier to draw a parallel to "quality". Everybody knows what quality means, but they probably can't tell you what quality is. That is because quality is a compound, situational factor - just like UX. So doing a conversation where you replace UX with quality is an interesting exercise.

comment Input form label alignment top or left?
@Chris, @DA01, @Gary: I agree with Chris that a proper summarization should be provided to external links. Primarily to give the reader enough information to choose whether to follow the link or not. I think that links and references are a good thing, though. It's better to provide a good reference than to google'n'paste something and take full credit for the content.

Left Alignment vs Right alignment is all about aligning the label that is already at the left side of the input field...

comment Using a joystick on screen
Can you tell us what the users are going to control with the virtual joystick? If the actual input device (mouse/trackball) are controlling the virtual joystick, then it can't be the screen pointer/cursor they are controlling?

comment Using a joystick on screen
@Matt. I saw that, but he could have misunderstood the joystick-part of the requirements. I read the first two sentences of the question as the requirement, and the last two sentences as his own description of the problem. They are ambiguous, hence the call for clarification.
