I do a lot of quick UI mocks and prototypes for PEMCO Insurance. Here’s one. We received a home valuation tool from a vendor. It had some useful features, but arrived with some rudimentary UI that would terribly slow down form completion and muddy the UX.I was tasked with making this better and available to our users on pemco.com. Using a mobile-first approach, sliders actually can be really useful (I just had a flashback to reading Thomas the Tank Engine to my son …) on phones and tablets, however, they are most useful when letting someone define a range (rate this on a scale of one to ten, how much is your package worth, how many in your party). When the options are clearly defined (economy, standard, above avg, etc.) and they have a clear step, the slider starts to lose its purpose. A selector bar would work nicely, but the labels are a little too long. I thought a stepping carousel would work and look well. While clean and elegant, this approach is not accessible to screen readers. A radio button menu will still look good, offer the accompanying help text, and be accessible to all users.
