The hardest part of any problem, epic story, or diagnostic is describing it. Someone is always going to hear something completely different in your words than what you were meaning. This differentiation of imagination is one aspect that makes the human mind so beautifully unique and complex, but QA testing a nightmare of epic proportions. Imagine it. QA testing without images — describing the scene and the bug all in one super long comment. Imagine having to translate all that for overseas developers. With bug tracking tools like Effi, screenshots are optimized to their true potential. With collapsible comments built straight in, QA testing has never been easier. Imagine if one day that was all just gone. For most this may be a horror story and others a comedy, but imagine a world without screenshots.

Sally hung up the phone, letting out a sigh as she chewed the cap of a ballpoint pen. “I don’t think I can do this anymore.” She cried out to a stack of papers that ended dangerously close to the dangling lights. She cleared her tiny desk of half a dozen full flash drives with a swipe of her hand. “Oh come on,” a tiny voice muffled out from behind the stack. “It’s not that bad, Sally. I am only one more client away from filling up my second Google Drive this month and you are almost at your third. Once we fill up five drives we get bonuses and…”
“I know. I know. The more bonuses you get the closer you get to a promotion.” Sally raised her head from her cold white desk to look at a group of laughing men and women inside a glass office. Oh how she longed to be in that office. They probably had air conditioning and a coffee maker. Maybe even bagels. They were the true testers. What the testers did in the old days. Sally was just a scribe — short for describer. She was in charge of making all the reports — of doing all the typing. She was pretty sure that she wouldn’t be able to use her hands properly in about ten years. Maybe she should invest in those fancy new robot hands everyone has been talking about. “Are you daydreaming again?” The man behind the papers appeared behind her with another case file. Sally jumped as she was drawn back into her sad reality of clicking keyboards, blinding white screens, and stacks of paper.
Before she could respond the phone rang. With a deep breath, Sally pressed the button on her headset, “Hello, thank you for calling WOE QA Testing. Where we discover all your bugs one word at a time. How can I help you?” She stretched out her fingers. Oh let the typing begin.
