  • THESIS TITLE : Evaluation and design of efficient Intelligent error limiting interface for rural and semi-urban Indian data entry operators
  • ABSTRACT : With the stupendous rise of Rural-BPOs in India, employment opportunities have increased greatly for the rural/ village youth as data entry operators – which is one of the essential source of earning for them. But, there are many challenges for data entry like- lack of expertise in design of user interface used for data entry, the transcription process (paper to digital) for double entry is costly & time consuming, and poor quality of mobile data entry. However, it is important to maintain quality of data during data entry. Therefore, we are providing ‘error limiting user interface’ for data entry by operators. This user interface provides the error and feedback messages in text as well as audio format in local language the operator speaks. It also provides different intelligent features like- display of auto complete suggestion for text field by ranking strategy based on likelihood, radio button pointed with most likely options and dynamic drop-down menu, to fields on designed interface. This mechanism was empirically evaluated by 224 professional involving, data entry operators working with real data entry in three rural-BPOs and polytechnic students as non-operators situated at Maharashtra which is eastern part of India. The user study of designed interface on sensitive variables like- perceived cognitive load, perceived system usability, user interface satisfaction, willingness to continue usage and relative advantage, have been conducted. The result concludes that, user interface provided with dynamic, predictive, adaptive, learning ability can improve data entry accuracy, save time, decreases users cognitive load and also increases system usability & user satisfaction.
