Abstract or Summary
  • This project studied how a user's handedness a ects his or her ability to use a special-purpose handheld digital device such as a digital camera or range nder. More speci cally, it sought to identify how handedness a ects speed and accuracy when navigating within a menu system. 24 participants were given 8 menu navigation tasks to complete using 4 user interfaces on a device emulator, half of the interfaces with left- handed menu navigation controls and half with right-handed controls. Participants also completed a written survey and verbal interview about the usability of the various interfaces. This study did not nd a statistically signi cant di erence between left- and right-handed controls for any of the interfaces, but o ered some insights from survey and interview responses that may be useful for future work.
