What Is Manual Testing

Before you use any item, whether it’s a car, phone, or pen, it must be developed and tested for quality before you receive it as a customer. Software is the same way. Software must be developed and tested to ensure it meets the companies standards and customer’s expectations. Having a higher quality software or product leads to more happy customers. Happy customers are paying customers.

Every company needs at least 1 manual QA software tester. Manual testing refers to the process of evaluating software applications or systems by human testers, without the aid of automated testing tools or scripts. It involves manually creating and executing test cases, observing and verifying the system’s behavior, and comparing the actual results with the expected outcomes.

Manual testing is typically performed by skilled testers who follow predefined test cases, test plans, or test scripts to uncover defects, identify issues, and assess the overall quality of the software. During manual testing, testers interact with the software as end-users would, exploring different features, functionalities, and user interfaces to validate its behavior and performance.
