Amit Deshpande
Yes, they do. Usability encompasses all areas, even the simplest of computing tasks and avenues and try to make them more accessible and still simpler for the user to comprehend. The major interest is to create an unobtrusive Human Computer Interface for the user. For example, we should also consider enthographical and sociological differences that can be implemented. As an instance, a bucket on a button could mean "water", but if we have to reproduce the same for a person in a rural setup of aboriginal Indian village (just an idea), we need to use a stronger metaphor like the "Ghada" or "Mataka"(Pot), which will definitely put our idea accross.
