Do you know a short descriptive paper or article which describes the tabulation button [Tab] to switch from control to control from the point of view of productivity/software ergonomy?
I have no usability lab yet, so I am interested how the user percieves the advantage of tabulating between user controls.I can explain how it is useful in core: tabulation between user controls can be productive if navigationflow between controls follows the standard workflow of the user between controls (the most repetitive paths).
I am an all-round interaction designer and I am to busy to deal the language & usability part while improving big large existing products on small usability features (quickwins).
But I find it also rather important, but also so time consuming and I am not specialized in that kind of stuff. I am the only interaction designer and there is a documentalist making tutorials. He bumps very often against hazy language constructions. He is quite busy also.
