Abstract: Interacting with calendars on web forms is often confusing for users in bi-directional interfaces. Moreover, calendars used in Arabic transactions are often dual Hijri and Gregorian dates. The HCI research in this domain has examined usability issues and design considerations for calendars on Transactional Interfaces.
In this presentation, we present an overview of eye-tracking research conducted in KSU to examine interactions with calendars on web forms in general, and Arabic transactional interfaces in particular. Furthermore, we propose design guidelines based on our findings. The investigation was conducted in two eye tracking experiments and the guidelines were proposed based on the model of interaction in web transactional tasks.
