Website Usability & Accessibility Testing
Assertive Media offers a range of website usability services that are designed to help clients, businesses and establishments utilise their website to the maximum potential by ensuring they are accessible and usable by all types of audience from the visually impaired to those with slower internet connections.
Website usability is how easy a website is to use, how accommodating the design and navigation is, how easy it is to find the information, services or products you are looking for and how the website facilitates users overall.
Website accessibility is how a website responds to visitors with impairments that affect their ability to browse the website. Accessibility is about catering for people with impairments, special needs or other disabilities. A website that offers contrasting and size options would be facilitating to those with “Visual Impairments” whilst websites that do not offer this are not fully accommodating.
Assertive Media offers a range of services that will help a business make its website accessible and usable. This will benefit the business as it will capture and retain more traffic.
Why should my website be evaluated for usability?
When looking at a website you may make your own interpretation of how “Usable” it is, however, the website should be evaluated by a specialised team to evaluate if the website is as easy to use as you may interpret.
Usability covers everything, testing menu navigation, website layout, content availability, website technology, page and website loading speeds, language adjustments, ease of scalability, ease of browsing, ease of converting etc.
A usability report will be generated highlighting strong and weak points within the website which can then be dealt with to ensure everyone is able to use the website with ease. This helps reduce bounce rates and increases visitor retention.
What about accessibility?
Accessibility is required by websites to be fully W3C compliant. Accessibility doesn’t mean changing the whole website, sometimes it is just a case of integrating a tool to enabling page zooming or live colour changing (i.e. for people with visual impairments) etc.
Assertive Media would conduct a full scale usability and accessibility analysis which would look at the most common issues surrounding accessibility.
Accessibility is an important part of web compliance as it gives everyone a fair chance to experience the web and to use websites without excessive difficulty.
