Simple User Acceptance Test

Take an everyday device like the Remote Control, when the manufacturer produces a new Remote Control model, it is probably tested by users to see if it is acceptable.

Otherwise there would be little point in manufacturing difficult to use remote controls, as the complaints and potential bad press generated by frustrated customers could be bad for sales.

Developing user acceptance tests for a remote control is quite straightforward, so let's take a simple remote control, as shown in screenshot below.
