Visual Testing Can Be Highly Manual and Time-Intensive
Compressed release cycles already put intense pressure on QA processes, but that challenge is even more so when it comes to the visual aspects of an application such as formatting, alignment, screen resolution, and action button location of digital interfaces. Yet, this type of testing is often the difference between a 4- and 5-star rated application.
There are multiple challenges for QA teams when it comes to Visual Testing:
- Even small changes to an application can have a significant impact on UI.
- Different devices, operating systems, and regions increase the potential for error.
- There is an infinite number of cause/effect variables to test.
- Existing manual test processes are costly, time-intensive, and error-prone.
