designing mobile interfaces for semi literateandilliterate people

I remember Gabriel White (isn't he on this list?) presenting work he did
for a phone in China that addressed this issue I think. But I can't seem
to find the actual product name. I'm sure he can expound...

user experience research companies/techniques

Hi all,

My company is getting ready to design an online community site. Can
anyone recommend companies around NYC that specialize in research
(market research, user experience, demographics, etc.)?

Also, I have a basic idea of how to conduct this research, but does
anyone have any recommendations of specific processes/techniques they
use? Books you like?

Thanks a lot
Jason

designing mobile interfaces for semi literate and illiterate people

Hi friends,

there are so many better mobile user interfaces for literate people.
but what could be the possibility of designing mobile user interfaces for
semi literate and illiterate people.
is using regional language a solution?
is using more images, icons and combination of real+virtual world a
solution?
what could be the possible scenario for the people who are novice mobile
user and illiterate?
are there any good existing interfaces specially made for illiterate people?

this is one of the emerging topic in some countries.

keyur.

discuss Digest, Vol 46, Issue 18

Hi Katie,

The first school that jumps to my mind is ID:

http://www.id.iit.edu/314/

It's more of a PhD in "design thinking" (or insert your favorite
"innovation" buzzword here) than straight up user experience, but as you
noted I don't think you'll find a PhD program in that.

I've know and worked with 2 PhD's from ID (as well as did my undergrad
there, so I'm biased) that I could put you in contact with as well.

FWIW, I've also met a lot of people in the UX profession with PhD in
anthropology as that seems to translate well.

[Possible Spam] Wired gets Leisa Riechtl's "Ambient Intimacy"

Josh,

This is the key point of the entire post-industrial world: You cannot
judge behavior without investing lots of time. Software, like people,
behaves, and software, like people, demands time to become familiar with
its behavior.
