Creative Veteran Productions –
Our QA process in our projects starts early and we test often. When we make a Game Design Document (GDD) it is reviewed for the document to be accessible, and for all the features to have 508 accessibility options. Such as allowing for multiple methods of input, be it keyboard, mouse and/or touch. Once all these features are approved in the GDD, then development kicks in and so does QA. During the production period a test plan is made based on the features of the approved GDD and then ad-hoc and regression testing begins.
For 508, we use the latest version of the Trusted Tester Section 508 Conformance Test Process for Web to test according to all the guidelines provided. This allows our development team to implement/address any non-conformant items that could appear. Once we reach a major milestone, like Alpha/Beta/Gold, we have our dedicated 508 certified team do a full pass to ensure that, on delivery of these milestones, the product follows and passes the accessibility guidelines.
We use the following tools which are recommended from the DHS testing processes:
ANDI is a powerful tool to test all web applications and our staff is highly skilled and fully certified in using ANDI for section 508 conformance tests.
ANDI is a testing tool that is used by our certified 508 testers to ensure full 508 accessibility that allows us to test for keyboard accessibility, screen reader outputs, and logic/heirarchy behind each page structure.
Color Contrast Analyzer
During our design phase, we check our user interfaces against this tool to ensure that our UI has the correct acceptable comformance for contrast ratios.
Color Contrast Analyzer is a testing tool to ensure 508 compliance for Level A, AA, or AAA requirements. We ensure that all interfaces and elements of any product meets the necessary contrast ratios relevant to 508 accessibility.
Accessibility Insights for Windows
The Accessibility Insights for Windows is a combination of tools used for accessibility testing. It can work on web browsers or desktop apps.
Accessibility Insight for Windows is used to check on contrast and to provide other information relevant to 508 testing. This allows for us to test each product in multiple ways to ensure full 508 compliance.
Freedom Scientific - JAWS
In our Quality Assurance process, we include screen reader testing to ensure that all programmatic outputs for each of our products are accurately being registered and read properly to the user.
JAWS is a screen reader software that is used by our team of trusted testers to ensure that screen readers detect the prompts that have been programmatically set and verified in ANDI.
