The next round of iterations, we added content, icons, buttons, a navigation menu, and titles on each screen.
After adding these additional elements to provide clarity, I spotted accessibility issues that needed to be addressed. Specifically:
On screen 1, some elements on the ‘Create Profile’ screen are still too small. They need to be bigger for accessibility.
In the appointment screen, the Thinkful UX/UI team said the "Pick Time" and "Options" button heights should be 44px to meet best practices.
- I increased the button height to 35px from 28px instead of the recommended 44px because this would require a major redesign of this screen.
- Because of time constraints I decided to address the redesign in future iterations.
They thought the "Name" and "Email" fields didn’t meet accessibility contrast requirements. After using a contast checker tool, I found they were right.
- I fixed this by bumping up the transparency on the placeholder text from 60% to 65%.
- I also realize the form fields should have labels. I will address this in a future iteration.
