User Testing footage of header/id combinations, @summary and @longdesc
Each test has been divided into several clips and can also be downloaded in its entirety, should you prefer. However dividing the tests into clips makes the files smaller and the issues/areas discussed easier to track. The clips are in Windows Media .WMV format, and contain roughly the following content.
