Accessibility Research & Testing
URI has over 3500 U.S. and International participants with disabilities in their database.
URI has conducted over 200 accessibility studies covering a wide range of products, applications, and services.
URI’s automated testing flags issues that could cause violations of WCAG Guidelines. Automated tests are performed without evaluating accessibility from the point of view of the Assistive Technology (AT) user.
User Research International’s manual testing uncovers false positives resulting from automated testing and provides a comprehensive examination of product accessibility.
With the assistance of participants with disabilities, usability experiences are reviewed from an accessibility standpoint. User testing is useful for uncovering usability-related accessibility issues such as confusing navigation flows and poor discoverability.
User Research International is equipped to handle both remote and in-person accessibility testing with a focus on sensory disabilities such as vision, hearing, touch, and speech.
