Description
This paper presents a study on feedback on touch screen user interfaces devices and how it impacts the use of the device by an individual. This paper looks at how the feedback may help or hinder the usability of a product. There is a focus in the paper on health care devices with touch screen user interfaces. Secondary research, such as journal articles, and primary research in the form of questionnaires and user interaction with a touch screen device make up the data collected for the paper. The main types of feedback studied are visual, auditory and haptic feedback. Four combinations of these feedback are the main focus of the study; these are visual only, visual and auditory, visual and haptic, and visual, auditory and haptic. Twenty participants volunteered to be in the study by filling out two questionnaires and doing a task on a touch screen device. Data was collected and analyzed to determine which combination of feedback would be most helpful for users in the use of touch screen user interface devices for a health care application. Results showed that feedback was helpful in the tasks done by the participants and most preferred only two types of feedback at a time over just one or all three types together. The results of this paper would help to improve the design and use of feedback in touch screen devices with health care applications.
