Usability and accessibility

The GUIDed project designed a detailed evaluation plan using standardised and unstandardised quantitative and qualitative instruments to assess multiple factors of user experience and product potential such as usability, accessibility, acceptability, utility and satisfaction.

The GUIDed project aimed at high usability and utility scores for its end-users.

Examples of instruments that were included in the GUIDed project’s portfolio, were SUS (System Usability Scale), Quebec User Evaluation of Satisfaction with assistive Technology (QUEST Version 2.0) and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.

In addition, the principles of Universal Design and Design for All guided the project’s user-centered development and evaluation activities.
