In Heuristic evaluation, evaluator evaluates design with reference of

Thanks in advance.

Telecom Self Service (Web & Mobile)

Hi Everyone.

I am doing an impossible research. Currently I am trying to find out how all the different telecom self-service portals work. As it's almost impossible for me to be a customer for all mobile carrier (around the world), I am asking the community to help.

This thread can act as a resrouce gathering for pattern study in telecom self-service. (if we manage to gather enough screenshots) I think this would be benefitial to everyone as this is not just a portal, not just a website, but more of a service design on the web.

Consistent Usage of Log In/Log Out versus Login/Logout

Greetings to all!

I have noticed that many sites utilize inconsistent label terminology
for links allowing a user to enter/exit an online account (be it an
e-commerce site, e-mail system, etc.).

I would expect that since these labels describe an action initiated
by the user (rather than a state), verbs and not nouns must be used:
Log In/Log Out, not Login/Logout.

However, often I see the following combination: Login (noun used to
enter) and Log Out (verb used to exit).

In your opinion, what do you think is the best label combination and

Printing Axure flows

Question for Axure users:

Is there a way to print out user flows from the prototype output without it messing up? Here's an example of how it turns out:


I'm not sure if this is the correct use of Axure, but I like to create flows and link the objects to various wireframes. I could use specifications but you lose the interactivity between the flow and wireframe.

Localization of keyboard shortcuts

Do you think it is good to localize (or allow customization of) keyboard
shortcuts? I am referring to the context of an application, not a web site.

For instance, in Spain, to save, the Ctrl + G (Guardar) key combination is
used pervasively instead of Ctrl + S (Save). However, across the board there
is little consistency as for example the Spanish Ubuntu operating system
uses Ctrl + S and Spanish Microsoft Windows uses Ctrl + P for printing
whereas printing is "imprimir" in Spanish.

Nielsen Norman Group Usability Conference--Ever attended?

I am a print guy looking to educate himself further in digital design, user experience etc and am considering attend some days of the Nielsen Norman Group Usability Conference here in NYC (http://www.nngroup.com/events/new_york/agenda.html). Just wondered if anyone had feedback on their conferences--I am new to this, but they seem to be about the best group out there offering this sort of experience. They look great, but I am footing the bill so I thought I would ask around, thanks!
