Today I performed a UX test on an old Tatoeba contributor. With his permission, I am publishing the contents of the tests on the wiki https://en.wiki.tatoeba.org/art...show/ux-test-2
I’d like to encourage anyone to perform similar tests, be it on new or regular users. It helps identifying UX problems and understanding people’s needs. You just need watch people using Tatoeba to do something. They have to voice out their thoughts so that you can understand what’s happening in their head.
I personally use a screencasting software + voice recorder or take notes while testing, and then write everything down as soon as I can while my memory is still fresh.
"S. clicks on tag List 907. "What the heck is that?"
Sentences with tags List 907
S. is confused. "It’s a tag on a giant corpus. Is is Tom’s corpus? No. I don’t get it."
S. clicks on the back button."
It's not a UX test because I was guiding the person so I have only one feedback. The person was really wondering if she could really add any sentences. Silly ones, over-excited ones, etc. I had to confirm that any correct sentence is welcome, not only basic ones, and push her to contribute the sentences she wanted.
