NUX Leeds, 28 August, Designing usable number entry interfaces

NUX Leeds returns with beer and pizza provided by our sponsors ebuyer and SimpleUsability from 6pm onwards and Sarah Wiseman’s talk at 6.30pm. For years research has been conducted in the field of text entry, and has led to some innovative designs for alphabetic text entry interfaces, but little attention has been paid to the way we enter numbers. Number entry is a highly pervasive task, whether it be entering our PIN at an ATM, or dialing a phone number to entering in financial data or medical information. Sarah Wiseman investigates number entry interfaces, and looks at the important aspects to consider when designing them. First, Sarah will cover the importance of getting number entry interfaces right, and will highlight examples of what happens when it goes wrong. Then she will talk about the aims of her research and what conclusions can be drawn from it. This will include design recommendations on implementing number entry interfaces with a UCD approach, including ways in which designers can reduce the number entry error rate for users. She will explain the cognitive theory behind number entry, and how this compares to what we know about text entry.
