This blog post has been underway for quite some time. It started last year when I was asked to do a talk about presentation skills at the annual conference in our teacher’s association.

David hits the nail on the head. A touch area should look like a touch area – the button term in the “tactile transferred to touchscreen” is redundant.

There will be a lot of great sessions to see. My talk will evolve around the field of cognitive psychology.
