First Impressions Matter

Your mom always told you that first impressions are important and she was right! Check out the Five Second Test (http://fivesecondtest.com) to find out more about how visitors form instant perceptions of your website design. This could also be a useful tool to help decide between multiple potential layouts or redesigns.

Hi Terry.

Speaking of first impressions, I read an interesting article yesterday which contained feedback from a group of people who are sight-impaired about usability of Web sites in screen readers. The study is dated, but still very interesting. It is available at http://redish.net/content/papers/interactions.html. The article is titled, Guidelines for Accessible and Usable Web Sites: Observing Users Who Work With Screen Readers.
