Accessible user experience and design

AccessibilityOz can design and analyse a current site’s user interface.

User interface analysis

AccessibilityOz uses the following design principles when analysing a current web site:

  • Matching experience and meeting expectation
  • Metaphor
  • Consistency – internal and external
  • Functional minimalism
  • Cognitive load
  • Engagement
  • Memory load
  • Functional layering
  • Visibility
  • Feedback and orientation
  • Direct manipulation
  • Mapping
  • Control, trust, and explorability
  • Error prevention, detection and recovery
  • Mousing and Fitt’s law
  • Affordance
  • Hierarchy of control
  • Spatial memory
  • Visual hierarchy
  • Natural reading order
  • Grouping
  • Visual weight
  • Visual balance
  • Visual minimalism
  • Visual rhythm and scannability
  • Aesthetics

For example, visual hierarchy covers whether the standard content pages have an appropriate hierarchy of content, ie. that the most important content is the most visible and draws the eye.

Some heuristics, such as Error prevention, detection and recovery are covered by WCAG2 requirements such as:

  • 3.3.1: Error identification (Level A)
  • 3.3.3: Error suggestion (Level AA)
  • 3.3.4: Error prevention (Level AA)

Interface design

AccessibilityOz engages Tomas Studios to develop user interfaces. Tomas Studios has extensive experience in developing web site interfaces, having developed the designs for OzWiki, OzART and OzPlayer.
