Below we go over how you can access our web recorder on the Safari web browser.
What Should I Expect When Opening the No-Download Web Recorder?
After going through the Basic Steps of a usability test, you will be redirected to the pre-test. The purpose of the pre-test is to ensure everything on your computer is working properly so that there will be no errors during the test, such as a faulty Internet connection, problems with the webcam or microphone, or issues with your web browser. During the pre-test, you will be guided through a series of prompts and will have to wait a few moments as we assess your system configuration.
Enable Screen Recording of Entire Screen
As the pre-test is running, a series of pop-up windows will appear alerting you that Safari would like to record your computer’s screen. It is important that you allow Safari to record your entire screen for the usability test to function properly.
To enable screen recording within Safari, on the popup window that reads “Allow ‘pre.userlytics.com’ to observe your screen? You can always change this setting in Safari Websites preferences,” select the option that says “Allow.”
Enable Camera and Microphone
To enable your camera and microphone within Safari, on the popup window that reads “Allow ‘pre.userlytics.com’ to use your camera and microphone? You can always change this setting in Safari Websites preferences,” select the option that says “Allow.”
After you have enabled screen recording of your entire screen and the pre-test is complete, a new screen will appear going over the pre-test results. If there are any issues with your system, the pre-test will allow you to run the pre-test again and provide instructions on how to correct the issues. Once everything checks out, the top of the screen should read “Pre-test checks successful.” You should then click the “Continue” button to begin the testing session.
