Is accessibility testing functional or nonfunctional?


Can anyone help me in this?

Thanks in advanced

Hi @anna-prokofieva,

In traditional models, accessibility falls under non-functional testing, however, because in commercial software accessibility often falls under legal or regulatory requirements it may also be considered functional but, not all software is commercial software or needs to comply with governmental regulations.

I like the following definitions from “a functional requirement specifies what the system should do” “a non-functional requirement specifies how the system should behave”

Hope this is helpful, thanks Happy Testing !!
