Usability testing with people with disabilities
Let users with disabilities test your product. It’s without a doubt the best way of achieving a more usable interface for all users.
What you get
- Your product is tested by a group of users with varying disabilities, for example, autism, low vision, and motor impairments.
- Video clips from the usability tests – both highlights and the full version.
- A prioritized list of the issues found and suggestions on how to solve them.
- Presentation of the findings by one of our accessibility experts.
Photos from usability tests
Pictures speak louder than words, so here are some photos from previous user tests that we’ve carried out.

Why this is so awesome
Testing with users with disabilities gives you insights that will improve the accessibility and usability of your site. So it’s way better than testing with people without disabilities.
Finding the users to test with can be difficult since some disabilities make the test situation complicated. We work with a group of people with different disabilities who have received specialized training on being part of a user test, making it possible for you to get feedback from all groups of users.
Our test groups usually consist of users with:
- Vision impairments
- Cognitive impairments
- Motor impairments
- Reading impairments
- Hearing impairments
How we’ll work
We always work together with you to decide on which tasks should be tested and on which type of devices.
Each test session lasts around 60 minutes and is recorded. You’ll get a video summary and complete clips from all the test sessions. If you want to participate during the test sessions, just tell us and we’ll set it up!
You decide on how you want the results presented. Communicated directly to the project team? Written report? Skype meeting? We’re flexible!

Thank you very much for your great presentation! I found that the findings are described in a very friendly way even for non-technical profiles.
I received very good feedback from my managers. They’ve considered the reports clear and well structured and the presentations were also very appreciated.
Storytel, Nextory, and Bookbeat
Watching users struggling with some of our most basic tasks really gets to you! We really needed to see this.
Almost all your suggestions are quick to implement. I think we’ll be done with 80% of them within 2 sprints. And this work will benefit more than just people with disabilities.

Discount if you combine with an accessibility review
Usability testing and accessibility review by an expert complement each other very well. Especially if you both want to fulfill accessibility guidelines (which expert reviews are best at) and deliver a better user experience for all users (which usability tests are best at).
We’re so keen on getting you to combine both an expert review and a user test that we’ll knock 20% off the total price. Oh, what a great deal! Go ahead and order before we change our minds 😉
