Went to the eye doctor this evening, and I have a complaint.
The office has moved to a paperless system where patients have to authorize services (for insurance purposes, etc.) by using their finger to write their signature on a touchscreen-based desktop computer. The computer screen they’re using is large (looked like it was 24” or so), but it is a completely unnatural way to sign important documents. The experience is awkward, and there’s no better way to describe it. It took me literally 12 tries to make what I scribbled on the screen remotely resemble my signature.
I blame Microsoft for thinking a vertical touchscreen on a desktop computer is an acceptable method for user input. The way I see it, when it comes to touchscreens: vertical=bad, horizontal=good.
