Arial vs Vernada?

For a better reading experience: *Arial or Verdana?*

- If Arial is smaller than Verdana, why do we use arial for the majority of
web apps?
- If there any studies or facts about that?

Comments?

Which tools are you using for remote usability testing and unmoderated user testing?

Hello everyone,

We're shopping for an unmoderated user testing tool and I'd like to know which tool you would recommend.

There are several tools out there... I found Solidify app (for prototyping test) by ZURB. Anyone using it? If so, how do you rate it as usefull in terms of detecting early usability problems in the prototype or mockup? If it has helped you, how?

If you has used other tools, how'd you rate it (pros xs cons)? 

Thanks.

Patricia

the UX Canon

Will and Dave have done a fantastic job of assembling a really high impact
group of books. By that I meant, they did not throw every book in the lot...
but assembled a manageable list of really high impact readings... certainly
the core of what is needed.

But I think it is also time to add a another category.

List ordering: alphabetical vs. logical?

Does anyone know of any studies, tests, or standards of practice that
discuss when to organize a list of items in alphabetical order vs.
another designed order (such as one based on expected frequency of
use)?

I'm most interested in this topic for web site navigation, but
applicable references for other contexts (e.g. menu design in desktop
applications) would also be appreciated.

Thanks,

Dmitry

What questions to ask for a persona interview?

Hi,

I am pre paring to conduct an interview to create personas for a medical web application doctors and patients. This app is not built yet, and the feature set will be drawn from the personas -- which is why it's giving me a pause. I am used to writing interviews about usability, and always used to work with existing websites. I never created personas before, though I used them before, and I'm having difficulty coming up with questions to ask the interview candidates.

designing for behavioral change for the purposes of sustainability

http://www.lboro.ac.uk/research/susdesign/design-behaviour/index.htm

This site, "Design | Behaviour" (from the UK) seems really interesting.
They don't talk about IxD, but it really sounds like they are using core
facets of IxD theory and practice in the work being explored.

We had an event here in NYC where we looked at IxD and Sustainable Design a
few months ago and this work seems to be right on target with many of the
talking points in the conversation.

Here at Moto we are looking at this stuff

Label left or right align

Basic stuff I know but...

Putting political persuasion aside, does anyone have an opinion on aligning
form field labels left or right to the form field.

I generally prefer to right align so that they remain in close proximity to
the device they are describing. Left aligning (which does have it's pro's in
defining a bounding area) can cause issues with marrying the label to the
device unless using a background colour to suggest the relationship.

Kind regards

KN
