Universal Usability - Designing Computer Interfaces for Diverse Users

£29.99

Product description

Edited by a key researcher and emerging authority in HCI and Usability, this work offers a groundbreaking collection of essential research into usability for diverse users, addressing economic diversity, age, and - most importantly - disabilities, where the foremost and most market-driven research is taking place.

Universal Usability is the concept of designing computer interfaces that are easy for all users to utilize. It is a concept which many decry as elusive, impossible, or impractical, but this book, which addresses usability issues for a number of diverse user groups, proves that there is no problem in interface design that cannot be solved, or at least improved upon. Individuals with cognitive, motor, and perceptual impairment, as well as older, younger, and economically disadvantaged users, face a variety of complex challenges when interacting with computers. However, with user involvement, good design practice, and thorough testing, computer interfaces can be successfully developed for any user population. This book, featuring key chapters by Human-Computer Interaction luminaries such as Jonathan Lazar, Ron Baecker, Allison Druin, Ben Shneiderman, Brad Myers and Jenny Preece, examines innovative and groundbreaking research and practice, and provides a practical overview of a number of successful projects which have addressed a need for these specific user populations. There are some very good illustrations.

In very good condition. Slight shelf wear to paperback front cover, including bumping to corners and edges. Tear to top end of FFEP, where is looks like a previous owner's name has been removed. Pages within are clean, crisp and in very good condition. Binding is tight.
