Applications of a new effort based model of software usability

Speaker(s) : Dan E. Tamir (Texas State University, San Marcos, Texas)
ABSTRACT: The effort-based model for software usability stems from the notion that usability is an inverse function of effort. This new model of usability can be used for evaluating user interface, development of usable software, and pinpointing software usability defects. In this presentation, the underlying theory of the effort-based model along with pattern recognition techniques are used to introduce a framework for pinpointing usability deficiencies in software via automatic classification of segments of video file containing eye tracking results. In addition, we demonstrate the way that these principles can be used to construct a nondestructive user interface where the user can effectively navigate the web with minimum attention. The approach presented enables deriving web browsers for vehicle drivers and potentially for the blind.
