When launching a web, mobile or desktop application, many companies and organizations fail to consider that users may have special needs or disabilities - putting them in direct violation of many accessibility standards. Instead of relying on disparate data points from beta users, or worse yet, formal citations, uTest offers a quick, cost-effective solution to ensure that our customers' applications are in compliance with accessibility standards before they launch.
What It Covers
Accessibility testing is highly dependent on industry and other factors. Here are a few areas where uTest can provide accessiblity coverage:
- Sounds, Text and Images: The software should include text equivalents for images, videos and sounds (e.g. an image should be described in text form).
- Visually Impaired: All buttons should be text-based to allow screen readers and Braille displays to read the information concerning that button.
- Languages: Often times, the basic information is translated, but all the notifications and messages that are available while using the product appear in a different language. This inhibits the user to from continuing to work or make the appropriate choices for certain steps.
- Navigation: The applications should be test to ensure that all moving and scrolling items can be stopped or paused in order to allow users with different cognitive levels to regulate their own pace.
- Third Party Apps: Testing should be done to ensure that all scripts and applets should be compatible with assistive technologies.
