    Abstract

    In the present research the benefits of animated icons were examined. A subset of static icons was taken from a CAD program and converted into animated icons. Subjects were tested about their understanding of the functions of the icons before and after the animation took place. In addition, a questionnaire was given to assess the subjective opinion of users about their experience. It was found that animated icons have a positive effect on comprehension of icons and the tasks they represent. Finally, some major issues relevant for effective use of animated icons in user interface design are discussed.
