“Who said users don’t matter?
On November 14, 2006, in towns and cities around the world, life will be a little easier. That’s when the second annual World Usability Day takes place – a global event promoting the value of usability: designing things that simply work better.
As part of this event, Sydney will host a number of free activities at the State Library of NSW. The focus will be to communicate ways of improving the user experience of products and services.
The program includes:
- The benefits of including usability when designing products and services
- Microsoft’s usability strategy for Office 2007
- Mobile phone usability and the opportunities for the future [That’s me talking]
- Launch and demonstration of NEWS Lab – the new research and development section of NEWS.com.au
- A demonstration of how vision impaired users experience the web and how it can be improved.
- This event also provides an opportunity to talk to professionals and learn more about developments in usability.
