Why user testing is important

Automated accessibility testing can be helpful, but used alone, doesn’t always give you the complete picture of how accessible your media really is.

To provide you with the full story, we combine automated testing with in-depth user testing. This can help you to fully understand what the issue is and how it affects whether or not people can access your digital media.

Each member of the  our testing team has a different type of disability and most use assistive technology to access computers.

Get involved

As with all our services, we encourage you to participate in the testing sessions. By seeing first-hand what problems our testers encounter, you will have a much better knowledge of how to factor in accessibility at each stage of  your project. You will also be in a better position to spot-check your live platform for accessibility issues. We'll also talk to you about free tools to help you.

Reporting and Resolution

Once the testing is completed, we will provide you with a clear and thorough report which includes screenshots of any issues and recommended fixes.

You are welcome to provide scripts and You can also choose to have a captioned video of the test day, so that you can review it, or share it with your team.

Our clients say...

"By working with DAC, and their testers, the Council were able to identify areas of its site that were failing to meet the required standards and were given excellent advice and feedback on how to address these. Time was given to implement changes before the final assessment. Overall, the Council found working with the DAC a rewarding experience and it has helped us understand further the issues people with disabilities face when using websites."
