Show Customers you Care
When you use Accessibility Testing you are opening your interface to a more comprehensive study while building your platform to be more inclusive. Accessibility Testing also helps to ensure that your interfaces are user-centric and shows that all users are of equal importance and that their needs are prioritized when developing new sites or apps.
Why Should You Implement Accessibility Testing?
Accessibility testing promotes inclusivity by ensuring that your studies and platform are accessible to a wider range of users. By considering the needs of individuals with disabilities, you create a more inclusive environment for all users.
Incorporating accessibility testing into your user experience research tools helps uncover potential inequalities and biases in your design. By actively engaging with all segments of your target audience, you contribute to providing an equitable experience for everyone.
If your product or service targets a global audience, it’s crucial to ensure accessibility for users from diverse backgrounds, languages, and with different accessibility requirements. This enables you to reach and engage with a broader range of users worldwide.
By making your design accessible, you ensure that all members of your target audience have equal access to your product or service. This leads to a user-friendly experience that can be utilized and appreciated in various settings, meeting the diverse needs of your users.
Considerations While Running an Accessibility testing
- Allot more time for accessibility studies since it can take participants longer to use screen readers to follow the tasks.
- Use concise phrasing with bullet points when formatting text for activities in order to make the instructions more clear for screen readers.
- Try to keep activities to 1 question. Create multiple activities if necessary.
- In many cases, screen readers will read the entire block of text, so if you have multiple questions in one activity, the user will hear all of them every time, which can cause confusion.
- Low vision users prefer seeing bolded text because they find it easier to read.
- When running moderated sessions with screen readers, ensure that the participants aren’t using headphones so that the moderator can hear what/when the screen reader is speaking.
- This is to avoid the moderator talking over the screen reader, while also allowing the moderator to hear what the user is hearing.
