    As some of the classic usability testing involves visual design, is it a matter of preference for colours, font styles and sizes which can be subjective. Is interaction design (that’s a part of usability testing) subjective too? If so, how do you take the subjective out of usability testing?

    Found an article on this very subject.

    I think like anything, it is hard to take your own experiences out of testing. Even trying to think like the target user means you have to use your own experiences to decide how they would interact with the software.

    It is a hard one to figure out. Anyone any thoughts?

    Not something I have a lot of experience with. I don’t know if this is helpful, but seeing as you mentioned colour it makes sense to check that the contrast makes content easy to see – I’d specifically look into the accessibility guidelines from WCAG:
