Designing Reading View
Reading View extracts article content from websites and lays out the content again for a dedicated reading experience. Due to legal reasons, I cannot include details for the work in Reading View.
These are the important user experience questions I set out to answer:
- Are users interacting with Reading View?
- What type of content do users interact with Reading View?
- How do we design the Reading View layout so users get the best reading experience
- Should Reading View be considered a webpage or an overlay? How does it fit with other common features in a browser such as History?
My process involved working with our UX Researcher to gather direct user feedback and I started an initiative to gather user engagement data. Feel free to contact me directly for more details
