One of the most critical aspects in the initial adoption and sustained use of any piece of software is the usability of its interface. Software usability testing allows developers to address this aspect and improve the quality of their product from the user’s perspective through objective and subjective measures collected directly from the user in planned experiments. The analysis of usability test results produces empirical measures of the usability of a given software product.
Testing is an activity which requires the full attention of the person performing it and which engages both sides of the brain.
While this statement certainly is true, sometimes reality prevents us from living up to it.
