Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Human interface guidelines are software development documents which offer application developers a set of recommendations. Their aim is to improve the experience for the users by making application interfaces more intuitive, learnable, and consistent. Most guides limit themselves to defining a common look and feel for applications in a particular desktop environment. The guides enumerate specific policies. Policies are sometimes based on studies of human-computer interaction, but most are based on arbitrary conventions chosen by the platform developers. The central aim of a HIG is to create a consistent experience across the environment, including the applications and other tools being used. This means both applying the same visual design and creating consistent access to and behaviour of common elements of the interface - from simple ones such as buttons and icons up to more complex constructions, such as dialog boxes.show more
