deliverables with a section on menu options with their related parameters

All,

What is it called when you are creating deliverables with a section on menu
options with their related parameters?
Can you point me to any sample deliverables for this?
I'm most interested in references for small screens.

Here is a link to an image that describes what I am trying to document:

For example, a list in my deliverable might show

volume limit (on, off)

The other issue is creating a deliverable used by many team members.

best practice for security questions

Hi there

Can anyone point me in the direction of sample security questions that could
be used to verify a user's identity if they don't have an email address and
have forgotten a password? EG Mother's maiden name, first school etc etc.

I think best practice would be to let a users set the question themselves,
but in this case we need to offer a set of questions for the user to choose
from.

Thanks for the tips,
Sam

Toronto educational resources

Hi all,

On the heels of Maurice's question about UI/UX/IxDA groups in Toronto,
and Matthew and Mario's excellent answers, I was wondering what formal

checked our list archives, at
http://interactiondesigners.com/topics.php?topic=education, and done
some web searching. What I've found so far is listed below; has anyone
had experience with the below courses and programs?

MSc User Experience Kingston University

Hi,

I have been looking into the Masters in User Experience Design in Kingston University.  I was wondering does any one have any experience of it?  Good, bad or indifferent?

http://www.kingston.ac.uk/postgraduate-course/user-experience-design-msc/

I know it has recently chaged from being an MA and MSc to just being an MSc.  My background is in design and advertising and although I would like to know all apsects of the field research etc, I would not like it to be at the expense of my strengths ie. design.

Prototyping vs annotated wireframe deliverable

I am wondering if it is possible to create annotated wireframes with a browser chrome or a device around the UI that can be viewed in an annotated deliverable but then be able to remove the chrome/device in the prototype version of the same wireframe file. I.e. Maybe put the device/chrome in a layer that can be turned off when the prototype is generated? Anyone have ideas which programs may be able to do this?

Many sites that offer help conclude the information with a feedback question such as "Was this helpful?"  This can be a valuable mechanism to tailor online or in product Help better.

Clickless Web Interface?

Immediately reaction - and I can pull down the heuristic about this - when a
form pops up to ask me how I felt about the interface - i accidentally
selected something and voted -
There was no user feedback - and no way to cancel a bad selection. The
ability to get reinforcement from an action, and to escape from a bad one -
or Undo - it a critical human factors flaw in the clickless interface.
Also - there is only one way to navigate and select things. This is very
poor for all non-gestural user navigation interfaces - Kiosks, hand-helds -
etc.

Prototyping tools: Axure (on Mac) VS Fireworks VS Flash Catalyst VS ???

Hi all,

For one of our clients I am asked to create a 'clickable demo' for usability testing. I've started this thread to ask you guys what tools you use/prefer/advice to create clickable demos (including arguments would do best). The project is about a recruitment section of a corporate site and will include pretty much dynamic content and some flash elements.

Basic time tracking and invoicing for a solo consultant

I'm neck-deep in looking at various options for doing basic time tracking
and invoicing just for me, not a whole agency. I've wasted a ton of time on
this and figured I'd tap the collective wisdom here.
Up until about a year ago I used a pretty simple timer on my Treo and an
Excel spreadsheet for the invoices.
