Web Accessibility Testing Boutique - September 14, 2022, 1:00-5:00 p.m. ET

Wednesday, September 14, 2022, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. via Zoom |  <https://nfb.org/civicrm/mailing/url?u=27050&qid=7519412> Register for the web accessibility testing seminar

Build a solid foundation in website accessibility to test your own websites. Properly testing a website for accessibility for blind and low-vision users may seem to be a daunting task,

You may be struggling with questions such as:

*    Which automated tool should I use? 

*    How much manual testing is needed?

*    Do I need to know how to use a screen reader to test my site?

The National Federation of the Blind can help you answer these questions and more during a half-day Web Accessibility Testing seminar. This seminar will offer attendees information on various aspects of both manual and automated website accessibility testing. This seminar will include information on testing webpages with automated tools, reviewing automated testing tool reports, and using screen readers to manually test webpages. We are also excited to announce that Vispero is offering free 90-day licenses for their JAWS Inspect tool to all interested attendees.

Hands-on web accessibility testing experience included. The group will review and analyze a report from an automated website accessibility testing tool and will also be guided through testing a webpage manually with NVDA, a free, open-source screen reader software. Also, Mark Miller from Vispero will be discussing their ARC platform and JAWS Inspect, both useful tools for website accessibility testing.

Recommended for website developers, web designers, web administrators, content administrators, site owners, site admins for a business or government agency, web coordinators, if you review websites.

It’s Worth the Effort

Accessibility simplifies and improves interactions with blind customers, employees, and employers. Accessible websites are useful to more than blind users. Most of the features added to increase accessibility also make projects easier to use for a wide variety of people.

*	Keyboard users
*	Those with small screen devices
*	Dictation software users
*	People using automated tools to gather information on documents, webpages, and other media.
*	Some accessibility features can make a project easier to migrate to other platforms or formats.

Accessibility boutiques and seminars are workshops presented by our access technology experts that provide introductions to accessibility best practices and the latest trends in access tech.
