    Abstrakt

    Considering cultural aspect of usability becomes one of the key factors for the success or failure of a global product. Culture not only affects products, but also impacts on usability evaluation methods. Usability evaluation methods which come from one culture may not be suitable for another culture. This project aims to examine the effects of culture on thinking aloud usability testing, and to explore what kind of the relations and communications between evaluators and test users are most effective. The project will be primarily based on Nisbett’s culture theory.
