7 User interactionsteps for a typical user interaction with a generic interactive system
8 User interaction Punten uitleggen First, the user forms a conceptual intention from her/his goal (for example, a user wants to access a particular project in the repository accessed from the Web site in Figure 2). Second, s/he tries to adapt this intention to the commands provided by the system (in our trivial example, an initial exploration of the Web page is needed to figure out how to realize the intention) and from these (user-perceived) commands carries out the action (for example, the user tries to type some information into the search text field, then hits the "search" button beside it). Then, the user attempts to understand the outcomes of her/his actions (in our example, by examining the page obtained after the "search" button is pressed). This is particularly important for computer systems, where the inner workings are hidden and users have to figure out the internal state only from few hints
