Original Software Enhances TestDrive-Assist to Make the Manual Testing of Software Less ... Manual
New Link-Checking, Spell Check and Markup Tracking Enhances Active Support Solution for Manual Software Testing
CHICAGO, Sept. 25 // - Original Software has released an enhanced version of TestDrive-Assist offering powerful link and spell-checking features, as well as a markup function that allows for annotated comments to be attached to any area of the program.
Checking links is a time consuming and frustrating proposition, especially for complex websites with constantly changing content, updates and external links. TestDrive-Assist not only checks and flags potential problems, but it creates an annotated list of many different types of link errors from "server not found" or "timed-Out" to "redirect," which helps developers determine how to pinpoint and fix problems.
Any application that is being monitored can also be optionally checked for spelling errors. This feature is currently available in four languages (UK English, US English, Spanish and Dutch) and includes a comprehensive dictionary which can accept user-defined words.
Manual testing involves many steps and inputs from QA staff which are rarely annotated with a clear record of the problems flagged or the corrections made. TestDrive-Assist now includes a powerful but easy-to-use markup function that records and creates an annotated list of comments and details the corrected actions. Text, images and formatting changes can appear as markups or highlights, or can be annotated in comment boxes, creating a clear picture of not only the changes made, but the rationale for these edits and corrections.
TestDrive-Assist is available as a dedicated manual testing support solution or can be incorporated with the Original Software's Test-Drive Gold solution to allowing the user to benefit from automated regression testing, code-free scripting and self-healing scripts.
