We've come a long way from the days when computers only had one version of software installed on each system via CDs (or its earlier precursor, the floppy disk!). Today, there are endless types of application software, or apps, to suit every need and purpose. As a result, applications have become ingrained in our daily work, life, and social activities. While you may use an app like Microsoft Word or Excel on your computer, a web application is software or a program that you can access through any web browser without having to download or install it.
The last thing the web content management space needs is another acronym, but DXP is one that goes beyond just a trendy buzzword. DXP stands for Digital Experience Platform, and it is now considered a permanent part of the web content management landscape.
This article looks at exactly what DXP is and how it compares with traditional Content Management Systems and how Digital Experience Platforms are transforming customer experiences.
We’ve recently covered what makes good UX and UI design, and when it comes to designing websites, sometimes less is more. With a few simple improvements you can refresh your website and improve usability at the same time. Several subtle, seemingly small, things can take a good web design and make it great. At Provisio, make sure these little things don’t get overlooked when planning a design. Here are a few examples of simple but effective components we use to help elevate your site’s design while also improving usability for visitors.
We looked at the importance of UX design, and now we will cover UI design and why it is essential for engaging with your customers. While UX design refers to the quality of experience a user has interacting with your website, UI represents the features of your site that allow a user to interact with it. It includes the basic design elements that are required for a person to navigate your site and make decisions. For example, let’s say you are downloading a white paper from a website.
We have covered the difference between UI and UX, so now let’s take a look at why good design is so important. The user experience (UX) refers to the quality of experience a user has interacting with your website or application. All aspects of this interaction contribute to the UX. It is the good or bad feeling a person gets after using your company’s site or service.
UX and UI: these two terms are often used interchangeably, but they mean very different things. UX design is short for "user experience design", while UI stands for "user interface design".
At the most fundamental level, the user interface (UI) is the series of screens, pages, and visual elements—things like buttons and icons—that allow a person to interact with a website, product or service.
Digital accessibility is the practice of building websites, digital content, and applications that can be used by a wide range of people, including those who have visual, motor, auditory, speech, or cognitive disabilities.
Accessibility features are designed to help those with disabilities use technology more easily. For example, a text-to-speech feature could read text out loud for people with impaired vision, while a speech-recognition feature lets users with limited mobility control their computer with their voice.
When a website is designed with accessibility principles in mind and built to work properly with assistive technology, it is accessible to most people. So, what are website accessibility features and how can they be used to make your website more accessible?
