Usability test sample size bibliography

Jeff Sauro does an excellent job of detailing all of the work that's been done on the topic of sample sizes for usability testing. His bibliography is annotated and many of the entries have links to pdf files of the original papers. If anyone is interested they can go through the literature very easily. I'm happy to point out that I have a couple of entries on the list.

Voice test for autism

This is interesting. Speech researchers claim to have invented a voice test for autism. From the article:
“This technology could help paediatricians screen children for ASD to determine if a referral to a specialist for a full diagnosis is required and get those children into earlier and more effective treatments,” ‘The Daily Telegraph’ quoted lead scientist Prof Steven Warren of Kansas University.
Very nice. I love to see speech research put to practical use.
