Engaging disabled users in testing your website with real tasks is a guaranteed way of ensuring everyone can use your website easily and effectively.
Following accessibility guidelines and good practices alone cannot ensure that your website is truly accessible. Involving disabled users in tests can however highlight whether this is really the case.
Recent studies, such as the DRC report into web accessibity have highlighted the importance of testing websites with disabled users to ensure they are fully accessible and can meet the demands of real users.
The drc report into web accessibility described disabled user testing as
Extreme user testing because disabled users will find more issues than able bodied users. If your website works for a group of users with a range of impairments and technologies you can be sure it will work for everyone else.
We offer a number of different services to meet all requirements; home user test, moderate test, and full lab test. In this way we can enable sites both large and small to discover the benefits of involving disabled end users.
