User testing & feedback

‘‘This would make me stand out, making me an easier target.’’

In situ expert user testing gave feedback which prompted a shift from direct language translation to language learning, and, from conspicuous to discreet.

 

Experience Development: From language translation to language learning

A device which could enhance language learning would speed up the learning process so the users would quickly not need a device at all.

User Testing

Feedback

The device didn’t feel secure enough around the users neck, especally since the device will be used on the go.

The attachment of the earpiece to the device felt restricting to the users movement.

A more secure design, with a completely removable bluetooth earpiece will be developed going forwards.
