Audiobooks from memos, presentations and even books.

Hello members,

I am about to make some research on an idea. Basically its an online company which wants to create audiobooks from memos, presentations and even books.

Why?  People have a need in the fast society to memorize presentations, etc. and dont have time to read in a car, packed public transportation etc. The audiobook will allow just that. There are computerized voices but they suck and cannot come close to an audiobook produced by a human.

Personas - Dead or Alive?

Hi all,

I did a search here on IxDA for "Persona" and to my surprise nothing returned.

Get involved in UX research! Online Survey (available in english, german or french)


Hi Everyone,

"got used to" - research or studies


At my work we're gearing up to rebuilding one of our major applications to support new platforms, mobile, etc... The current solution has more than a decade of work in it, and with it, more than a decade of solutions that are suboptimal, out of time, or simply bad.

I have a really big fear that we won't be successful at fixing these and delivering needed changes, because sales/management stops us because "the user got used to that solution, dont do this".

Tools vs. Platforms

Hello to all in the Forum! I have been an UI/UX designer for two years in Germany. I am now based in London studying Computing and Social Media.

For my own research practice I wanted to start a discussion on the conceptual models, current ideas regarding the design of 'platforms' vs. 'tools' for users or for social media.

Are these concepts changing? Think about this also in terms of desktop computers, or mobile devices..
