Today’s blog post is a classic tale of ‘toilet-lock usability and standards’.

Last week, on a commute back from London, I had cause to visit the carriage’s toilet. I stared blankly at the unfamiliar and (to my mind, unnecessarily) complex locking mechanism for a few moments before settling upon an arrangement of buttons and levers that I was confident would lock the door and ensure me a few minutes privacy.

Although they’ve been on the market for a while now, there was a huge push from Amazon and Google to get their ‘smart’ assistants – the Echo and Home respectively – in to our homes and lives this past Christmas, and Voice Controlled User Interfaces (VCUIs) / Conversational Agents (CAs) have been mentioned on countless blogs and sites as key trends to keep an eye on this year – including our own.

Today is World Usability Day and the theme for the tenth anniversary is ‘Innovation’.
