Chapter 9. DVD Menu Usability: Guideline... > Test Your Disc for Usability

Test Your Disc for Usability

As the creator of a DVD, you have an intimate understanding of a project's menu structure that may mislead you into thinking it's easier to use than it really is. Let average users test your DVD. Watch them try to use your menu and see how intuitive it is to them. Can they easily find all the content and move from section to section without getting lost or confused? Ask them to navigate to a specific section of content. If you've provided customization features such as audio language choices or language options for captions, ask them to change a customization setting to see if it's an easy task or confusing.

If you tell testers what to do or explain anything to them, you ruin the test and the opportunity to see design flaws exposed. Just watch and learn.
