We know that there's a lot of benefits in making your website or application accessible, especially in the Digital Era, but why do we still have a lot of inaccessible websites?

Testing Times, Testing Topics: Flipping the script on manual testing...

The testing community is up in arms about "manual" testing; “What is it? Why do we use the term? Does the term do justice to the practice? Why don’t we automate everything? Why don’t we say manual cooking?!?”

Is the misunderstanding of the practice all that bad? Is it a dying art that needs to be replaced by automation? Or is it just one of the many different test techniques and tools that make up a testers armoury?

In the first of the "Testing Times, Testing Topics" interactive roundtable series, our crack squad of testing experts will discuss this tricky topic and put forward their ideas.
