Subject: remote unattended usability testing software
Hi - Can anyone recommend software (or a service) that does remote
unattended usability testing? LiveTest (from Lionbridge - link
t.htm) is the tool I
know most about, but they are pricey. Are there other less-expensive tools
that are of the same quality? We do not need the recruiting aspect, only the
test delivery, data collection. The analysis portion would be helpful, but
not necessary. 
Please send me your responses - I will collect and summarize for the list. 
NOTE: I am not asking about tools for "in person" remote testing (e.g.,
WebEx, Morae, the phone). 
thanks - Kay Aubrey

I've used Keynote's WebEffective tool.
I don't know about pricing because I was a consultant for Keynote and had
access to the tool thru my work with them.
Hi Kay,
The two we've used are RelevantView and
UserZoom and both were much less than KeyNote - who
seem to be the biggest. This was with no recruiting included, but some
analysis. We generally have seen folks call this "automated" remote
usability, as opposed to "moderated," which you are not interested in.
Another you may want to keep an eye on is MindCanvas from Uzanto - coming
And if you feel like adding any tools that you find valuable to our remote
usability Wiki, that would be splendid:
Good Luck,

There's a company in Spain called "experience consulting" and they do a
product/service called UserZoom.
I think they resell in the US via a consultancy called User Centric.

Hi Kay - 
I think UserZoom ( <> ) offers the
same kind of browser plugin approach as LiveTest.
At my company, we developed a very simple automated remote testing tool
using Microsoft Access which I discussed at CHI this year
