Glossary » menu-driven interface

menu-driven interface

an interface consisting of a series of screens which are navigated by choosing options from lists, i.e. menus. (“Menu” is not used here to refer to pull-down menus, but to lists of options on the screen that lead to other screens.) Because of their simplicity, menu-driven interfaces are commonly used for walk-up-and-use systems, such as information kiosks and ATMs. Websites are also often designed with the same basic navigation principle, where navigation bars substitute for “menus”.
