As one of the fastest growing sectors of IT, the expected growth for the app market is $80.6 billion by 2020. With that many app users having such varied abilities, it is extremely vital to make sure that your app is usable by everyone so that your app can succeed.

Pairing testers with disabilities with nondisabled testers yields valuable results. It's a constructive approach to enhance test coverage because there are functions of an application that either a visually impaired tester or a sighted tester may miss on his own, but together they find more defects.
