Usability

The usability of UX can be defined as the ease of effort it takes a user to accomplish their goals. This is a broad definition but it ranges from the functionality of the particular features to the overall use of the application.

Some of the disabilities to be aware of when designing an application include hearing loss, impaired vision, motion impaired or learning impairment.

Some design principles to keep in mind are paying attention to color contrasts, turning the article into audio, implementing screen readers and being specific with alt text.

Usefulness

Although this seems like an obvious point to keep in mind, asking the question “is this useful” should be a question on every UX designer’s mind. This applies to the website as a whole and the additional features that are added after the initial stage of development.

Findability

Some of the ways that a UX company can improve findability is incorporating an accurate search bar or displaying the menu tab in a clear and easily readable way.

Desirability

If a particular website or mobile application is desirable is very closely related to the user interface. The UX and UI teams need to work closely together in order to create a product that is both aesthetically beautiful and interactive with the user while also making sure the user is having a good experience.
