Monthly "Testing Websites with Users with Disabilities" sessions

  • Author: Jill Wolters

  • Date:

Monthly Testing with Users with Disabilities sessions start in July.

These sessions focus on Assistive Technology (AT) users and are twofold. 1) to create awareness and, 2) to provide a discovery opportunity for barriers to content.

Every second Wednesday from 9 to 10:30 a.m. we host a demo of a UCSF website tested by a native user of AT. You may get the opportunity to see online barriers encountered. You must sign-up to attend


Get an introduction to AT. Gain awareness of why to make online content accessible to all users. Not familiar with screen reader assistive technology? Watch our 5-minute screen reader demo.



Accessibility checks may reveal:

  • missing or inappropriate image descriptions,
  • incorrect heading structure,
  • data tables missing headers,
  • missing data visualization interaction,
  • and reading order issues.
A dark skinned wheelchair user with long hair and a beanie sits at a small table, using their laptop to participate in a video meeting. The laptop screen is shown to their right, with the call being live captioned. The main speaker is a dark skinned person wearing a hijab and glasses, and 3 other participants are at the bottom of the screen, in smaller windows. In the bottom right corner, a yellow service dog bounds towards the wheelchair user.


Those interested in digital accessibility.


You must sign-up to attend. (Requires MyAccess login.) The Zoom details will follow soon in a calendar invite.
