The successful scan prompt is "Select your wireless". This is not even proper English.
When WPA Supplicant is not started on the target, the prompt shown is "The wireless subsystem could not be contacted (Code". This is wrong and made both our tester and myself (the principal engineer of Horizon) think that the label was being cut off.
When a network with WEP/WPA security is selected, it is not immediately obvious that the passphrase needs to be entered for installation to proceed. Our tester tried to choose Next, and upon finding that disabled, thought the solution was to click Add Network. This needs significant redesign.
The passphrase input line does not have the "eyeball" icon to display the passphrase being entered, unlike every other passphrase input line in Horizon. This caused the first association attempted by our tester to fail, because the passphrase was entered incorrectly.
