DAISY Reader Test Document

Instructions

The following document contains 19 separate tests for DAISY book readers.  Each begins with a summary of the test with the option to skip to the next one if it does not apply to the device or application you are using.

Beneath each summary is a table containing two or more specific actions to perform for the test.  The first column in the table contains numeric IDs for each specific test action; the second explains the action to take; and the third is for you to record the results of each action.

When recording your results, be sure to include as much detail as possible.  In some cases, a simple “yes that worked fine” might be enough.  An example is Test Four (Heading Navigation), where you’re asked if you can navigate directly to the beginning of chapter 7 in a book.  But in most cases, we need more detail to understand how well a device performs.  For example, in Test Two (Large Books), you’re asked to open books of varying sizes.  Instead of saying “yes it opened”, tell us how long it took to open; once it was open, tell us how fast or slow the device or application was; etc.  Each action contains questions to prompt your answers, but feel free to go beyond these questions.  Also, be sure always to record how easy or difficult each action is.  Basically, the more information you give us the better, since very few of these tests are simple “pass” or “fail”.

Finally, save this document with a name that includes the device or software name plus your name.  For example, “DeviceName--JaneDoe.rtf”.
