Resizable Fonts

Not all visually impaired people make use of technical support to navigate on the internet. The feature to increase fonts is an important element to ensure that all information of the website can be read by all users. Even people who are not visually impaired need to increase the font sometimes. At the same time, an increasing number of older people surf the web; they too need a feature to increase the font. To this purpose, it is important to define the font size not in pixel, but in percentage or "em".

Some font size (less than 5%) are fixed and cannot be increased, or a less ideal feature using Javascript is being used.

File Size of the homepage

The size of the homepage in particular should not be too large, so that it can be downloaded as quickly as possible. File size is a factor that impacts download speed.

The file size of the homepage should be optimised.

On-site search feature

A link to a search function was found on the homepage of the tested website. It is advisable to have a proper search field on the homepage, for users to insert their search words.

Complex URLs

"Even though machine-level addressing like the URL should never have been exposed in the user interface, it is there and we have found that users actually try to decode the URLs of pages to infer the structure of web sites. Users do this because of the horrifying lack of support for navigation and sense of location in current web browsers. Thus, a URL should contain human-readable directory and file names that reflect the nature of the information space."

Membership/Registration process

Until a few years ago, registration procedures scared web users off, as they were unable to determine which website to trust their personal data and which websites were not trustworthy. Things have change a bit in the meantime. Website registration can bring some benefits:

  • personalisation allows for tailoring of the content to the user's profile.
  • Targeted, personalised newsletter tend to have more success.
  • The information provided allows to adapt the offer to the needs of the users, by evaluating profiles anonymously.
  • Specific content can be offered for a fee.
  • Additional content best not circulated to anonymous users can be made available.
The registration process still contains a danger of asking too many personal questions, making the users feel uncomfortable and therefore avoid the website. Refer also to Nielsen's critical stance in "Prioritizing Web Usability" by Jakob Nielsen/Hoa Loranger.

No opportunity for membership was found on the tested website. Some websites prefer not to offer membership to all users, which is fine. Membership needs to be evaluated on a case by case basis.

More Link

Names of links should be short, precise and meaningful. Links such as "more" or the die character sequence ">>" should be avoided, as the user should be specifically told what "more" can be expected.
