An Expert Consultant for Visual Design
Part of the Languages and Information Systems book series (LISS)
Behavioral experimenters have hypothesized that fundamental principles of human communication can be discovered to help designers of computer systems create a better human-computer communications interface. A large number of experiments have contributed to the growth of a corpus of such principles. Compilations of principles have been published, yet computer systems continue to have poorly designed interfaces becaus
The principles are not widely known; and
The principles cannot be readily applied.
