Evaluation on BMI Calculator
I produced several audio examples using a keyboard microphone and a mixer which was based on my research.
I tested my outcome by letting 10 people here the sounds i recorded, which then I asked them
"describe one word when thinking of this sound,"
There feedback Shown Below.
sound = click
- tin can The average was click,
- foot walking
- pen dropping
- pen click
- finger click
- light switch
This was a good sign because I wanted the users to know this was a click sound, as I was looking for a clean sharp quick audio sound that shows the users they are on the rollover state of the interface.
When building the interface I encountered a few problems.
One of the main problems of this design was the action script within the BMI calculator.
The action script required a math function which I had to work out on paper first, when I solved the equation I had problems with the if statement.
Basically the in the if statement I wanted the code to run through the math part and get to the if statement, then say if (BMI = (<25> 30) "BMI gotoAndPlay "this"); I got a bit confused with the "greater and less then" part of the code, this caused a problem because the code was being directed to a different movie clip, but I solved the code in time and the BMI worked the way I needed it to.
I added extra content to the calculator by turning the calculator into a BMI website, this was not required by the brief but I changed this because the calculator looked very bare on it's own.
with the required content and images and using aesthetics to change it's form I produced a clean looking user friendly BMI website.
