Are they all the same?
« on: May 31, 2014, 01:48:26 PM »
I am not sure how many website testing jobs there are, but the two testing jobs I have seen require the contractor have a webcam.

They require the webcam to see the facial expressions of testers while they evaluate the target sites. While this reason seems harmless at first blush I am concerned that those images might pop up on Youtube or be used for purposes other than website testing. For this reason, I want to find a testing gig that does not require the contractor have a webcam trained on them while working.

Has anyone found a website testing job that does not require contractors have webcams?

I have read many website testing opportunities but so far I have not found any that does not require a webcam. They seem to all need their tester to have both webcam and microphone.

I don't think they all need to have their tester's face in the webcam though because what I know is you basically review the site by talking but focus the camera to what you are doing on the website so you can record its functionality.

I find website testing jobs to be very diverse and some can pay quite good - it depends what you are trying to do. There are many that require you to use a webcam but those are generally more basic jobs. I have found the ones that pay best are the actual coding ones where you go in identify errors and help them fix the errors but those generally require a much larger skill set.

I think you need to read the terms and conditions for privacy issues and see exactly what you are agreeing to when you register.

It should be clear from the terms of use whether or not by agreeing to those you consent or allow them to use of your webcam footage on YouTube or for other purposes.

If this is not made clear, then you should question the website about privacy issues.

I agree. The terms and conditions are often lengthy but reading them really help. What website are you subscribed to? I'm not familiar to testing sites. Actually, it's my first time to hear of such. How much are they paying for these tests?

I did a test with YouEye the other day and they require you to have a webcam and mic. I have not heard back from them so I am wondering if I even got paid or if they declined it. I already did my signup one and this one was a paid one. I am signed up to other sites too most just require to hear your voice and they record your computer screen while you visit the website.

Usertesting does not require that you use your webcam but you do have to have a mic.

I tried signing up for WhatUserDo but had an issue with uploading.  I will try again tomorrow.  They don't require you to have a webcame since all they do is recording your voice and your computer screen.  The other one I applied to was TryMyUI.  They don't require a webcam either.

Usertesting does not require a webcam.  They only require a microphone so you can record your thoughts as you test the site.  You have to speak constantly, though since they will not be able to gauge your facial expressions.  The only problem I have with this site is that I never seem to qualify for the tests.  Like survey sites, they seem to be looking for a specific demographic.

Well, I got accepted by TryMyUI, but I need to either adjust my mic or get another one.  The issue I'm having is that I logged in today thinking I would get some sort of notification (like if it was messenger) when a test came in.  But nope.  Instead when I went to check my email earlier this evening, I had 4 different emails from them saying they had tests that fit my demographic.  When I checked on the site the tests were already taken.  I'm thinking I'm supposed to wait in front of the computer and wait?  I can't do that all the time.  I'll still sign-in just in case but it's a little disappointing.

I have registered with whatusersdo and usertesting. The screening process is almost the same. They both don't require a camera. They will just record what do you on the screen and your voice. I got accepted with those two testing sites. I never received any invite from whatusersdo. I often check the site to make sure I'm not missing anything but there's none really. :) As for usertesting, I get a lot of invites. You need to keep it open and you have to respond ASAP because it's on a first come-first serve basis. Problem is, I'm not often qualified. Must have something to do with demographics. I was lucky to finish one this week (the only one I qualified). Payment is still pending it says on the site. Not yet sure if the recording made it. I got a feedback after a few days that It had audio issues. I'll have to wait a few more days to confirm.

Well i think you might be right in that respect but i think one of t major reasons they might be doing this is probably to prevent the system from being abused. And so far i am quite sure majority of their client may be pleased with that.
