On October 18th, University of California website owners, online content contributors and developers gathered to learn about manual testing techniques.
Guided by Lucy Greco, UC-Berkeley's Web Accessibility Evangelist, the topic of manual testing was introduced, with why it's important and how to get started.
Jill Wolters and Christina Ovalle from the UCSF Digital Accessibility Program assisted with tool demonstrations and event coordination. A big thank you to Judy Thai, UCOP Director of Application Engineering for Zoom support.
This system-wide event for University of California site owners, online content contributors and developers, drew attendees from across multiple locations.
Here's the breakdown by location with UCSF and UC Berkeley as the campuses with the highest attendance.
