Please respond to the following:

“Electronic Ballots” Please respond to the following:

· One criticism of electronic ballots for elections is that while intuitive for younger voters who are familiar with using a mouse to point and click, elderly voters and motor-impaired users will have difficulty controlling a mouse. Discuss how you would correct this issue so that every demographic would have an equal opportunity to vote. Support your answer.

· Imagine you have just finished interviewing a recent college graduate for a design position within your company. At the end of the interview, the college graduate remarks that design would be much easier if people conformed to the design, rather than the design having to be accessible to diverse populations. Respond to this comment, addressing the legal, societal, and ethical issues that designers face in regard to human-computer interaction.

Instead, address what changes could be made to make elderly and motor impaired voters have an easier time with the voting process used in your location.

 

Regarding making voting more accessible for the elderly and motor impaired there have been debates between the security and accessibility.  One example that I found was curbside voting. This allowed elderly voters the opportunity to vote directly within their car. Another example that I found was large touch screen which makes for an easier way for sight related issues with the elderly. Creating screens with larger text and larger spacing between the names on the ballot allow for and elderly person with Parkinson’s degree that movements are inevitable.

In many ways, lack of mobility and other types of impairments can diminish seniors’ ability to vote without some assistance or accommodation. With increased age, seniors will become more limited in their ability to get to polling places by driving, walking, or using public transportation. Once seniors arrive at the polling places, they may face additional challenges, depending on the availability of accessible parking areas, accessibility of polling places, type and complexity of the voting equipment, availability of alternative voting methods (such as absentee voting), and the availability of voting assistance or aids.

I disagree, design needs to be accessible to all populations. Design usability is a necessity to succeed within marketplaces. Fluidity of interfaces between diverse populations is key to creating a successful product. When designers go thru user and task analysis and keep the users in mind, this will help them see more functional insights needed for their product.

Please respond to the following:

“Interface Design Models” Please respond to the following:

· Evaluate interface design models and describe design issues across human-computer interaction environments associated with these models. Support your response.

· Building an interface can be broken down into the phases of design and development. Analyze the activities that take place in both phases, and explain why certain activities should be included in design but not in development.

 
 

PR’s post states the following:Top of Form

Model-based user interface design looks at the ways of decreasing the effort required in the development of interfaces and at the same time, it ensures quality.

This discussion leads into prototyping. Models can consist of at least: application, task-dialogue, and presentation. 

Or, what does it do, what can the user do with it, and what does it look like. Because this is an HCI course, the discussion might focus on how one can deliver a great presentation, that the user can operate, that does what they need to do. Right? In one of the papers students will have a task to deliver what the interface looks like. Sometimes, instead they deliver what it does. Please keep task objectives in mind during the design process.

How does model focus change with intent?
