Physiology as a Tool for UX and Usability Testing

The purpose of this degree project is to investigate how physiological measures, such as heart rate, skin conductance and EEG (i.e. electrical brain activity), may be useful in UX and usability testing.

One physiological research method is discussed in more detail, i.e. the measurement of pupil size, or pupillometry. The study seeks to answer the following questions: 1.What can we find out about human emotions and cognition by measuring and analyzing variations in pupil size? 2. What can we find out about human emotions and cognition by using other popular physiological measurement methods? 3. How does pupillometry compare to other physiological measures for the purpose of UX and usability testing?

Enhancing the user experience for a word processor application through vision and voice

The aim of the study is to investigate various means to increase the usability of a word processor for use by a diverse group of users, including users of different expertise levels, ages and abilities

A word processor is a software application which allows for composition, editing and formatting of a printable document. The word processor has become a very popular tool in the everyday use of a computer and has displayed a remarkable ability to evolve and incorporate emerging technologies. The original word processor was developed by IBM in 1969 and since then it has evolved constantly, exploiting the advances in technology.
