    User researchers have a poor user experience when analysing data collected from usability tests. Postusability test analytics is a non-standard process where there is a lack of best practice guidelines and data management workflows. Moreover, usability analytics is normally a tedious and time consuming task. This paper presents a semi-automatic web-based system to improve the user experience of analysing user videos and other data from usability tests. The system presented is called UX-Handle (www.uxhandle.com) and was developed using a web technology stack. UX-Handle allows researchers to input UX-related data including demographic data, systematic usability scale scores, single ease question scores and to efficiently annotate user videos with ‘use’ errors, task completion times and user emotions amongst others. As a result, standard usability metrics are automatically presented using charts and graphs.
