Tatoeba usability test
Hello and first of all thank you for taking the time to conduct usability tests for Tatoeba!
The instructions are simple.
1. Find people who can give you a bit of their time (10 minutes) to be a tester.
2. You can ask anyone to be a tester, the only requirement is that they have never used Tatoeba before.
3. Don't explain to them what Tatoeba is. Only ask them to use Tatoeba. You will show the the home page as a starting point (
4. Tell them to describe out loud what they are trying to do.
5. Don't help them. Just let them do whatever they want to do, and figure out on their own.
6. But take notes of all the problems that they had while using Tatoeba!
Fill this form for each person that you have watched using Tatoeba. Read all the questions first, so that you know more specifically what you should pay attention to.

Which pages of Tatoeba did the user visit?

Understanding of features for non logged in users
Did the tester have any trouble with the search feature?
This is assuming that the tester tried to search for sentences. You can leave this empty if the tester did not have any trouble. Please also mention here if the tester did not even realize they could search for sentences and see their translations.
Did the tester understand that they could see the details of a sentence by clicking on the # or arrow icon next to the sentence?
Is there anything else that the tester tried to do while not logged in, that is worth mentioning?
