Nielsen Norman Group, one of the most world renowned agencies specializing in usability, has acknowledged Semantix with the Nielsen award for Dixio, the smart dictionary. It is thus recognized as the best designed multiplatform application of 2012, based on the principles of usability, which require applications to be easy to use and intuitive for users.
Dixio certainly meets these requirements, and that has been confirmed by the greatest international authority. They are also met by the other winners in the same category, Highlight and Mobile Unified Communications (UC).
Nielsen primarily evaluated Dixio’s adaptation to the different supports on which it can be used, which was achieved by considering each device’s limitations and, in particular, what their users need or expect to find. We find that it is essential to know our users if we are to provide them with a good experience.
With Dixio we have given the dictionary a new look and feel, and it has become more like a gadget than an application. It is like a personal assistant who only appears when he is needed. Our tool supplements reading in a very subtle manner, without distracting the user. Dixio, then, provides support for readers.
As you know, Dixio is the smart dictionary, and it is available in three versions: Dixio Desktop (for computers), Dixio eReader Solution (for smartphones, e-readers and tablets) and Dixio ForWeb (for website).
