Conclusion

Understanding how users recognize an icon is as complex as understanding visual perception itself. The factors that affect the comprehension of pictorial symbols can be grouped into four categories of human factors which are physical, cognitive, social, and cultural. In this study, the results indicate that culture differences affect user preference of icons. The cultural factor plays an important role of the comprehension of icons, and is worthy of more in-depth study.
