Today is World Usability Day and the theme for the tenth anniversary is ‘Innovation’.

The official website of World Usability Day states that “Innovation in User Experience means that people can do what they need and want to, with technology, products and services that enhance their experience”, and their message, which we wholeheartedly agree with is:

“No-one should have to suffer through products and services that get in their way. People should not be made to feel stupid by technology.”

Bunnyfoot’s Aaron Young talks to BBC News on the demise of ‘hated’ Captcha verification system

Ticketmaster has announced that they are to scrap the much loathed Captcha verification system which requires customers to decipher a jumble of hard-to-read letters in order to prove they are human.  The system is designed to prevent  bots from trawling for tickets but has become one of the biggest irritants for fans. As these robots have become more sophisticated, Captcha has had to become more advanced in order to stay effective. But in the process, it has become more difficult for humans to understand.

As Aaron told BBC News:

“It is generally speaking, one of the most hated pieces of user interaction on the web. The major problem with them is that it’s not unusual for several attempts to be needed. So when people see them again on different websites they have negative expectations.”


Evaluating our evaluations – proving improvements in design

Here at Bunnyfoot, we’re big believers in using solid evidence – we want to be able to prove that every stage of user testing what we do improves the overall user experience of the projects we work on.

A lot of thought by professionals and academics has gone into producing ways of measuring something as intangible and hard to describe as an individual’s experience – and to see its change over time. I thought you might be interested in how this is done in our industry. This blog post will give you insight into how Bunnyfoot arrived at its own evaluation methods.

Keep reading to get a glimpse into the complex but fascinating world of website usability and evaluation.
