I would do it like this: The alt text contains a textual description of the picture.

I will also go with the first option (yes/no radio). But here is the most important thing to understand. And that is, why to go with the first option: You are bounding user with the choice. User's self-esteem is playing a crucial role; in sub-conscious, he is the decision maker in the first case. So "most of the people" will choose the first option only. ...

A short but sweet answer: Check out this tool. Colorbrewer It allows you to feed in your requirements and get color schemes that work for printing, photocopying, color blindness, and appropriate visual differentiation. It should give you what you need.

I would recommend using Dave Green's cubehelix colour scheme which attempts to address almost exactly this problem by making the perceived intensity of the colour vary linearly while twisting through the colour space to provide additional contrast for users with a colour screen. Cubehelix is not a software package itself, it is an algorithm for generating ...

Single column for sure and research is present. Have a look at idea Number 1(ironically) here all of findings are supported by research and studies I believe double check on the source tho.

Countdown. As a part of behavioural study, I believe countdown would create more anxiety in users thus leaving more impact. It appears to be more progressive and users knows when will the wait end, unlike in the case of progress bars. Having said that, we need to keep in account that this countdown shouldn't be too long. It will take away the user's ...

You have to design your documents for those of us who have vision issues and/or reading issues. But underlining can also easily impede those with perfect eyes.

You can plot the bar chart from right to left, column chart from bottom to top, some people like looking at the largest and some may sort country ascending. Agree readability: the degree of ease for readers and message to them Re Luciano: Slanted values for x-axis because the text is too long to display (say Excel). For example, sort from A-Z to Z-A, ...

General Summary It's safe to generalize and suggest that both the positive and negative effects of incentive use on survey response rate and data quality can be described as mild to none. Notes on these studies I first included a longer list of links, but on review found their actual content to be thin, or they had based their content on other studies ...

Answering My Own Post I did the grouping in the following way: My problem was how to efficiently group the products/services which are related to same customer. In this design, I group the product with a header contains customer name and also grouped the services with the header contains customer+product name. Data displayed is not correct(sorry for that)...

No it's not cool, what is the user trying to do? play a game or spam social media? Also what if they are offline?

My own research ( as yet unpublished ) indicates that the search is the MOST important part of the site, even more than the navigation hierarchy, which most sites give a whole lot more time to. When users have come to a site home page, the most common route to progressing is the search. Of course the alternative is that they come via another search engine ...

As you stated in your original question, the Numero sign is the most widely accepted generic symbol for "number". It even has a designated key on the Russian keyboard! (above the 3). I don't think it gets more universal than that (otherwise we would know about it, no?) As for plurals, the only way I've seen it done is with adding an 's' after the Numero ...

Yes, you should definitely mirror them as well. In fact there are plenty of things to make sure you RTL (verb) if you're targeting Right-To-Left users with your app/website/etc.. We had a similar layout in Gallery App in Firefox OS and we've made sure to mirror that correctly. OTOH, I wrote 2 articles on Mozilla Hacks that can answer your question in detail ...

The C key is comfortably positioned relative to the Ctrl key; that's [likely] why it's been chosen for the Copy shortcut. The P key, on the other hand, is too far away from the Ctrl key. On a QWERTY keyboard, the C key is on the row above the Ctrl key. You can press both with your left hand while it remains in a natural and rested position, even if you have ...

I guess simply default state would suit the button the most. It may be a bit oversimplified , but perfectly matches the occasion since it is for commenting and the purpose is to convey the message. By convention (during styling) we will refer to default style of a button and removing the default styles. So for even a naive user default will be perfectly ...

Render the confirmation in a modal: This will highlight explicitly to the user that one more action is needed.

I don't find the article I read which speak about this subject. But anyway, It says (from a Google employee) that they will reward websites for the user experience comfort more than technical guidelines everybody's following. And I think giving everything to the user is better (in business terms) than SEO (word of mouth, satisfaction, retention)

This is generally just based on the user's preference, but I would say you would be better off using sign in, but be consistent. You see, 'log in' does not generally mean enter the system with credentials, logically, while 'sign in' is more recognizable. Take for example you are going into a hotel, and you need to get a room. You use your credentials (Your ...

Yes, yes and yes! 37% of our customers would not proceed with the purchase once they would find out that VAT was added at the later stage. We (my company) used to sell cheap trips around Europe to students. At first we thought that excluding VAT is a good idea, but shortly realised that we are loosing a lot of customers. After surveying those who never ...

From a usability perspective? Infinite. With help being clearly highlighted to the user. From a security perspective? That's one for the security stack exchange really. Though Andrew's answer seems good.

Having designed a lot of ecommerce websites I would say that carousels are effective. Specifically in getting users to view more main promotions. They are fun for users to interact with and improve the likeliness promos will actually be read or make an impact.

If you look at the data points on high contrast reading studies what you notice is more veriability on the high constrast side of chart. You will also notice that readability is not significantly lower on high contrast side. What that mean is some people find high contrast much more readable. This suggests that some people are well adapted to high contrast ...

Yep, I agree that one should be selected by default. ----- Additional comment below ----- This really depends on the context and what kind of application it is: what the label is and the options provided. That being said, it is a positive experience to add what matters to the user by allowing her to select her desired option(s), rather than requiring her ...

Using the phrase 'populated' may be appropriate here. The forms are 'populated' with data already, so forth.

I would use the word clone. I am a developer and that is the word we use. In many development languages that is exactly what clone means. If it was just temporary the term developers would use the term impersonate. For lack of something better I would use the technical term. Please see the comments. The OP asked be to add that as an answer.

material design is good but they're not flat perfectly. I recommend you this, my ideal flat button p/s : if you want people consider something is a button, you need provide them "label" and "icon".With these two elements, most of users will know "ah, there's a button, let's click"

Is Microsoft's Ribbon UI really that great, from a usability perspective?

The first time I ever used it was at my current job. Among my co-workers, the feelings towards it for usability are mixed. The other developer doesn't really care one way or the other, as long as the ...

Put a logarithmic scale on the slider. Larger values rarely need to be precise, so you can put a quite large upper limit on it. Take the largest conceivable value for this input, add 50%. In response to the system wanting volume rather than substance, I will restate what I said in the above paragraph. The question wants a scrubber/slider-style control, ...

I highly recommend asking for ratings. But there are a few essential things to consider. As mentioned before, breaking the UX is really terrible. So, there are 4 key points to make your request effective, get a good conversion rate, and get better ratings: Choose the right moment: Ask for rating at a specific moment, for instance when the user just won ...

There are statistics. I usually say that there are 4 key points: Ask at the right moment: people are highly willing to rate you if you ask them right after they do some great achievement. Finish one level, gain some points, etc. Ask the right question: wording is really important. Make your question/answer sound like it's part of the game instead of "Would ...

Given that you're suggesting a URL based on their company name, you should go with option 1. In this situation, options 2 and 3 will be very odd. Create a prototype with option 1, then test it with 5 users (and test other things). Use one, fake company name that you decide for all tests.

I think the BACK/NEXT navigation within the quickview is only useful if the user is in a well defined category or filter where they are trying to compare similar items.

My answer is a little different but I think it's also being missed by a lot of the current answers. Mobile first is important because it reflects customer/society trends. The bottom line is that most people are no longer accessing web sites from a desktop a high percentage of the time - they are accessing it from their mobile phones! Just look at the ...
