Projected Phases

  1. PHASE ONE:

    1. GOALS: Build English proof of concept for testing with computers, demonstrate demand, get basic workflow in place so can apply for funds for further development

    2. Build prototype (using processes A and B) that allows

      1. Testers to register

      2. Companies to find testers   

      3. Testers to upload videos of their tests (records both the audio of the speaker and the video of the screen).

      4. Provide some resources for building accessible web or mobile products

  2. PHASE TWO:

    1. GOALS: Using external funding (?), build larger scale and more automated version

    2. Build version that can handle more testers, more company requests

    3. Outsource payment system?

    4. Make site bilingual

    5. Expand resources for building accessible web or mobile and other products

    6. Provide ability for WCAG experts to register in directory, so companies can find help (phase 2 or 3)

       

  3. PHASE THREE

    1. GOALS: Sustainable model that incorporates lessons learned from phase two, and expands testing environments

    2. Build in extra features, eg coordinating companies with testers who are willing/able to work onsite

    3. Permit testers to upload videos of their tests of mobile environments as well as computer environments: videos will also capture taps, swipes, and gestures

    4. Further expand resources for building accessible web or mobile products if necessary

    5. Provide ability for WCAG experts to register in directory, so companies can find help (phase 2 or 3)

       

  4. PHASE FOUR (dream options)

    1.

      1. Create account, email verification

      2. Review technical requirements

      3. Sign confidentiality agreement

      4. Fill in profile (type of disability, technology, adaptive technology)

      5. Do a sample test or multiple tests (tests are vetted by CWDO)

Process B: Company/organization experience process map

Process B.jpg

  1. PHASE ONE

    1. Company/organization registers

    2. Company/organization posts a project and their requirements

    3. For security reasons, project gets sent to CWDO administrator/group for approval/search

    4. CWDO administrator/group finds appropriate testers

    5. CWDO sends project description to potential testers

    6. Testers can review material and indicate interest/availability to CWDO

    7. CWDO sends user info to company

    8. Company sends users content for testing

    9. Testers upload their results (and notifies CWDO)

    10. CWDO pays tester

       

  2. PHASE TWO (after demonstrated success, something that can apply for funding)

    1. System gets more automated to not require so much human handling and to let payment happen through site

Process C: WCAG Expert Signup experience process map

Proposed Website Structure

This is currently based on Usertesting.com’s structure, and should be reviewed and revised as necessary.

 

  1. Home

    1. Inclusive Testing can help your company improve the usability, accessibility, and searchability of your web products. We match companies with people with disabilities, who will record 10-15 minute videos detailing their usability test of your website. For a low cost you can ensure that people with a variety of disabilities as well as search engines can find, navigate and use your content.

  2. Log in: Allows registered company to enter the system

  3. Company sign up: Allows a company to register (see Proposed Form Fields)

  4. Get paid to test: Sign up form to become a tester. Two types of testers. People with disability and WCAG testers. (see Proposed Form Fields)

  5. How it works

    1. Companies submit projects that CWDO disseminates to testers, who record their tests using screen recording software (length of the videos range between 10 and 15 minutes, depending on how many tasks the user is asked to do. Pro plans offers videos as long as an hour.)

    2. Who uses us: Overview, Designers, Product Managers, marketers, Agencies, mobile Game Developers

    3. Videos (sample, explanations)

    4. FAQ

 

  1. Resources: Overview, case studies, webinars, ebooks, white papers, tips and checklist, industry reports, our blog

  2. About us: Overview, Executive team, in the news, contact us

  3. Pricing: Request pricing details (call or email)

  4. Help: Contact us form, FAQ
