Just to add on to Michael's answer, The thought that 'I' messed up something helps you in realising what went wrong and the realisation that Glad I made the mistake so that I can make sure I won't make the same mistake again helps you grow as a professional. A good IT professional is not just a person who can code, but can debug So, that goes for ...

This answer does not provide the exact definitions, just the differences. 1. Accessibility Testing Testing carried out to verify whether the application is user-friendly to the physically disabled user. For example, we can consider the Kindle e-book application. For this application, we check whether the application has the feature to read the e-book ...

Corner Case Testing: When the system breaks only for a specific valid input eg: Imagine a function getcar() that that takes a number and all numbers from 1-5 are valid inputs: But, getcar(wheel=?) function works with all numbers but fails for getcar(wheel=3) Edge Case Testing: Here we check that the system handles extreme values of valid limits. ...

Welcome to Humanity Admit the failure, feel bad briefly, move on. It's hard being human with all the biological reasons behind many of our behaviors. You will be ok if you start practicing the following beliefs: We are all human and we all make mistakes We often learn more from mistakes than successes The scientific method for improvement relies on being ...

As others have said, usability refers to the ability for people to successfully use your product. Accessibility refers to the ability for people with disabilities to successfully use your product. Do you notice something about these two things? Yes... One is a subset of the other. Unless you define "people" as excluding those with disabilities, then ...

First, you have to understand the difference between UX and UI In simple words UX: Focuses on designing a UI that enhances the user experience. Means it ensures that the UI design is designed with ease of use, easiness in Accessibility and feel in looks. UI: On the other hand, ensures endpoints for a user to interact with the product. So a simple UI ...

Preferably you look at the statistics of your current user-base, but if it is a new product I would do a form of risk-analysis using general usage statistics There are some websites which have statistics on browser, device and resolution usages you can base your plan on (in random order): https://netmarketshare.com/ https://www.w3schools.com/browsers/...

You might argue they are the same - if you cannot access something you cannot use it and if you cannot use something (in a meaningful way) you cannot really say it is accessible. It is a thin line between those terms, at least linguistically. However, those terms usually mean something specific. So, accessibility in the context of software development and ...

I've been testing embedded devices since 1999, and I started from scratch as a manual tester and I'm now a full-time automated test software engineer developing both tests and systems / frameworks, so I hope I can offer a little perspective from my own viewpoint. I started out testing credit card machines (entirely manually), moved to mobile phones (mainly ...

No, it is not necessary but, I would say it is beneficial. Knowing the basics in testing is mandatory because, with the experience of test processes, test scenarios, test cases, test steps, and execution, you will be sturdy to write automated test scripts more efficiently. The transition will get smoothened if you start your career with manual testing and ...

Below is the difference: Accessibility refers to the website is available and can be easily accessed by a normal person or even disabled person. Accessibility testing focuses on testing if the website is accessible to disabled people and can be used by various tools used by them. Usability means to deal with how easy and intuitive a website is to use. If ...

Cross browser testing - When we get a requirement to test a website developed by PHP and angular js. What are the main browsers which we need to test? What versions of it? We had the same issues in the past. Since we were testing with different versions for our frontend application. They should also run as webapps and of course they should also run on ...

We do testing because some of our colleagues will have made mistakes before us. This is actually expected and is a consequence of us being imperfect human beings. Part of our job as testers is to identify, without rancour, other's mistakes so they can be fixed. Organisations have to accept (or be taught) that testers won't find everything that's wrong with ...

1) Everybody makes mistakes - if this were not so, testers would not be needed at all! 2) Think over automatization of important routine test cases

First of all, you can't cover 100%. Now, the answer to your question is that prioritize your test case according to your web application. I.e. check the highest priority test case. Secondly, check with issues that occur mostly in the application. Thirdly, check the cases which can impact to other processes.

Start with mindset of below: Creative test approach. How I can break the code. Cover maximum functionality with Minimum scenarios. Learn Product and Functionality. (Be a functional expert). Document your product experience and Share with people around you. Adopt Devops Agile (You can google about them. Last but not lease. 7. Be Proactive in approach and ...

Every software testing company performs accessibility and usability testing. Following is the main difference between both: Accessibility testing: It is performed to ensure that the application being tested is usable by people with disabilities. Accessibility testing is a subset of usability testing wherein the users under consideration are people with all ...

Usability testing is to understand if your product is actually usable by the target audience of the product (whether it is web site, app, hammer or stairs). Note that it may mean that you may largely ignore groups of users that are not in your target - i.e. testing an app for "drivers with paralyzed left hand" you may not need to include legally blind person ...

From my perception, usability and accessibility are terms usually misused and confused. These two plays an essential role in enhancing UX and performance of a product, so these two are a critical quality indicator for interactive products/systems. I believe that you have learned the difference between these two. The principal benefit of conducting ...

Every software testing company uses both test automation and functional testing to handle these kinds of situations to cover 100% of the feature coverage. However, if we don't have automated scripts then for those cases we can perform smoke, sanity and regression testing: Smoke testing: In this, we decide if the QA build is stable and all critical areas of ...

Prioritize the critical test cases and time consuming test cases. Share those test cases to the testing persons who executes fast and correct. Then give the medium test cases to other persons who have good knowledge of the project/ product. Then aggregate the low priority test cases and give to the remaining testing persons to execute.


1

For most test cases depend upon your choice to which one you have to execute first and later on. For large test cases, mostly it needs to be prioritized. First: prioritize the test cases. Second: Check which cases/issue affects most of the module. Third: Go for newly fixed issues for modules.

Writing testcases has its benefits, but you may not have time to write a really verbose test plan. I sometimes just had my scenario in the testname only and be done with it. If you leave the project midway, the written testcases will help the new member filling in your shoes, while he does regression on the overall project.
