Example text

The purpose of this article is to introduce the user study in China. Previous research has documented the cognitive and cultural differences between Chinese and Western populations, including cognitive styles, cognitive (verbal and visual) abilities, digit span, color association, personality and cultural patterns (Choong and Salvendy, 1998). Consequently, Chinese users’ comprehension and recognitions for icons and symbols are affected by their culture and cognitive characteristics. For example, Chinese users can understand concrete symbols easier than abstract symbols, while most Westerners have the opposite tendencies.

In the matching case, 76% of the participants selected ―do not press‖ as the meaning for (m). Interestingly for (n), ―press less‖, 27% participants picked meaning option (15), ―give up‖. Unfortunately, the symbol (n)’s often-given answer in the interpretive case, ―lift your finger‖ was not provided as one of the choices in Table 1 and so no direct comparison could be done. 19 DISCUSSION SYMBOL USABILITY The graph in Figure 4 illustrates the comparison result between interpretive and matching cases, sorted by level of difficulty in understanding the symbols (from hardest (n) to easiest (l)), based on the correct rates from the interpretive case.

13 was due to the different direction of the arrows: 12 participants got confused with the up arrow in symbol No. 12 and interpret it as “raise up the finger” rather than “press less”. Second, Chinese users can understand symbols easier when the context is provided. 21-24. Therefore, in the synthesized symbols, each single symbol was surrounded by a context. This change resulted with easier interpretations of each single symbol by Chinese participants. 21-24, the participants often had the tendency to understand the symbols holistically with their context and their links with each 48 other.
