A group of students have tested the WTKollen tools for usability and accessibility. The test was carried out as a part of the Web Project course at the Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences.
The participants have tested the web page checker, the PDF-document checker and the tool to check websites.
The results show that:
- More than 80% of the responders were satisfied with the WTKollen Webpage Checker.
- The PDF Checker got overall decent reviews despite issues with text resizing, and the mobile experience.
- The website check have navigability issues but was overall well received.
- The users found the concept lookup service helpful but the Termer-button was hard to understand and to use.
The results from this user testing will be used in an upgrade of the tools.
The user test was divided into 2 parts. The first part was related to the concrete usability/accessibility issues, while the second part comprised overall post-test questions. The first part covered:
- Page title
- Text resizing
- Navigability with keyboard only
- Navigability with touch screen
The aim of the second part was to gather feedback and impressions from use. More details on the test setup can be found in this blog post on user testing.
We would like to thank the students for all your valuable inputs and comments. We would also like to thank the University staff, and specially Anthony Giannoumis and Terje Gjøsæter for your helpful support to organise the session.
