Usability testing is an essential part of user centered design processes. Noldus provides the best usability testing tools for your usability tests.

Why usability testing

Usability testing allows you to find flaws or improvements in your products. A good usability test typically includes synchronized recoding of multiple modalities:

  • a close-up image of the user,
  • a screen capture video,
  • eye tracking,
  • facial expression analysis,
  • physiological data,
  • speech, tasks, errors, and more.

Emotion analysis with FaceReader

Emotion data provides crucial insights that allow researchers to explain complex behaviors in greater depth. Because human assessment of emotions has many limitations and biases, facial expression technology can help to deliver a greater level of insight into behavior patterns.

FaceReader is ideal for collecting this data, and helps you to better understand human-human, human-machine, and human-product interactions.

The option to record audio as well as video makes it possible to hear what people have been saying – for example, during focus group discussions, human-computer interactions, or while watching stimuli.

FaceReader is the most reliable software tool for facial expression analysis (source).
