Website Usability Analysis

Through the Usability Assignment I have acquired a greater understanding of how website functions and features are viewed by end users.  Of course I, myself, have been an end user on many websites and could come to many conclusions about the company site my group was assigned – however, reviewing a variety of other professionals’ feedback I realized that users are made up of individuals from a wide variety of technology backgrounds.  Each participant’s prior experiences resulted in personal preferences, and surfaced through the surveys our group distributed to our participants.  Many were satisfied with the website – one for a business offering communication services to those in the deaf and hard of hearing – as is, although others desired greater functioning and updates made to the site’s aesthetics. Companies must consider the perspectives of all users, in order to appeal to the mass.  This project has heightened my critical analysis skills related to websites, as well as reminded me of the benefits of having more than one mind working towards a single end.
