InspectorWidget: a System to Analyze Users Behaviors in Their Applications

Abstract : We propose InspectorWidget, an opensource application to track and analyze users' behaviors in interactive software. The key contributions of our application are: 1) it works with closed applications that do not provide source code nor scripting capabilities; 2) it covers the whole pipeline of software analysis from logging input events to visual statistics through browsing and programmable annotation; 3) it allows post-recording logging; and 4) it does not require programming skills. To achieve this, InspectorWidget combines low-level event logging (e.g. mouse and keyboard events) and high-level screen features (e.g. interface widgets) captured though computer vision techniques. InspectorWidget benefits end users, usability experts and HCI researchers.
