Perhaps you could start by telling us how you would test the font button in Microsoft Word. – user246 Oct 13 '11 at 21:33
For what it is worth, a lot of people wanting answers to QA interview questions seem to hang out at – user246 Oct 13 '11 at 21:36
If it's for an interview, the answer should probably be your own – Lyndon Vrooman Oct 13 '11 at 22:25
Hey folks - I'd be interested to hear why nobody's voted to close this post. When I saw the question initially, I expected close votes, but while there are downvotes, nobody wants to close it? I'd have thought it was a perfect candidate for a close - no research, no response to requests for more detail. It's our community - fancy popping an answer over here?:… – testerab Oct 17 '11 at 18:33

I'd go to the I.M Testy blog ( BJ Rollison of MS ) and search for 'font'

I'd also get a copy of How We Test Software At Microsoft and read it

I'd probably do a Google search for "How would you test the font button in microsoft word", perhaps post the question to a few random forums, then follow whatever came back without even thinking twice about it.

Oh wait, no I wouldn't... never mind.

Okay, I've just gotta put a +1 on this one simply for the humor... – TristaanOgre Oct 14 '11 at 17:15
Agreed. Note to self: next time I am interviewing candidates, let the recruiter know I'm going to ask about a 'test me button' on some page I make on a wordpress site. Then search the intrawebs for people asking 'how do I test the testme button' and my site URL if I can match up any of them to a resume that's been submitted pitch that resume in the trash. – Chuck van der Linden Nov 16 '11 at 1:13

I'd suggest you approach this as follows:

Work Out What The Font Button Is Supposed To Do

  • Open MS Word, search the online help for "font". Read the entries related to fonts.
  • Have a bit of a play around in Word trying various settings.

Write Some Tests To Check If The Font Button Does What It's Supposed To Do

Use what you learned about the font button to write some test cases. If you don't know how to write a test case then try searching either on here or with Google.
