    Abstrakt

    In this short paper, we will focus on the impact of culture on the established Usability Evaluation Methods (UEM). The production and use of technologically advanced information and communication applications is no longer restricted to the Western world. There are indications that usability testing procedures developed for use in e.g. Europe or the US fail to give reliable results in countries such as India, China or Malaysia. The paper discuss results from pilot studies which indicate that different parts of the think aloud usability testing procedure – verbal reminders, gestures and the language used – are important in different regions of the world.
