This paper describes an evaluation study of an ontology-driven WYSIWYM interface for metadata creation. Although the results are encouraging, they are not as positive as those of a similar tool developed for the medical domain. We believe this may be due, not to the WYSIWYM interface, but to the complexity of the underlying ontologies and the fact that subjects were unfamiliar with them. We discuss the ways in which ontology development might be influenced by issues stemming from using an NLG approach for user access to data, and the effect these factors have on general usability.
