Mesmer Answer Your Questions

Mesmer

How does your tool improve my life as someone in QA?

Mesmer automates accessibility testing for mobile apps. This helps QA folks flag, ticket, and help fix accessibility problems without the drudgery of going screen-by-screen with manual screen reader and keyboard testing.

 

What misconceptions are there around your tool?

Mesmer requires manual effort to get started. Mesmer's automatic app crawler performs an exploratory test of the app to discovery key flows.


What tool feature are you most proud of?

Mesmer's AI-powered automatic app crawler, coupled with Gherkin journeys, help QA pros quickly achieve app coverage across an app's operable flows in days, rather than months of scripting.

 

What is your roadmap and how do you decide what to prioritize?

Mesmer loves to co-design with its QA partners and we are always adding to our road map. We prioritize features based on the problems our current and future partners are looking to solve. Mesmer will continue to release features, like Web support for Accessibility, in 2022. That said, we're all ears to hear more about your accessibility testing challenges.

Mesmer

Mesmer, the leader in Application Experience Management (AXM), uses AI-powered bot to automate mobile experience testing for everyone. Software teams offload time-consuming tasks to the bot, starting with accessibility testing for mobile apps. Deep Learning Automation (DLA™) enables the accessibility bot to autonomously interact with mobile apps just like a screenreader or external keyboard would to continuously find accessibility compliance violations. This results in always accessible apps, faster releases, and reduced compliance risk.
