Human Factors (HF); User Interfaces; Setup procedure design guidelines for mobile terminals and services
Kind of resource: 
Guidance document

Description: 
The present document provides user interface design guidelines for setup procedures, applicable to mobile terminals and services throughout the product life-cycle. The design guidelines address the design, specification, implementation, deployment and maintenance of mobile terminals and services and are equally applicable to consumer use as well as to professional use. For the purpose of the present document, it is assumed that access to mobile services is primarily achieved through handheld terminals, typically characterized by a limited screen size, a 12 key-keypad and possibly, additional function keys and/or a stylus and/or a touch screen. The guidelines provided in the present document focus on public mobile network terminals and services, but they are also applicable to other technologies (e.g. cordless or IP-based telephony and Wi-Fi). Wherever possible, an integrated design-for-all approach has been adopted, taking needs and abilities of children, older users and users with physical, cognitive, or sensory impairments into account. When appropriate, specific guidelines for the optimization of the accessibility of setup procedures are presented and existing guideline documents are referenced for further details.
