The User Preferences menu, instead of having a standard menu title, uses the first name of whomever is logged in at the time. This has two issues:
- The use of first name could be considered as offensive by some cultures. See http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-personal-names for detailed examples of international name differences. While not a W3C page, this one is also informative:http://www.kalzumeus.com/2010/06/17/falsehoods-programmers-believe-about-names/
- At the very least, this is presumptuous.
- This gives us no standard way of referring to the menu. Should just say "Preferences".
Steps to Reproduce
- Login to Archer as System Admin
- Note menu says, "System"
- Login to Archer as a user who is configured such that First Name = Stan
- Note menu says, "Stan". This conveys ZERO information as to what the menu is actually for, and additionally could be perceived as a section 508 issue as there is no useful context for a screen reader.
Preferences menu caption is standardized to "Preferences"
Preferences menu caption is the logged in user's first name. Presumptuous at the least, may be offensive to some cultures.
