Celebrate UW Global Accessibility Awareness Day on May 17!

Thank you to all who presented and attended UW’s Global Accessibility Awareness Day event!

PowerPoint presentations are now available on the session schedule page below their respective session descriptions.

Explore with Hadi

“Explore with Hadi” meet-ups provide an opportunity for UW web developers and designers to discuss accessibility issues in a relaxed, casual setting, and provide friendly feedback on accessibility of each others’ web projects.  We encourage you to bring your accessibility questions or just join us to see what others are working on. The event is hosted by Hadi Rangin, a web accessibility specialist within UW-IT Accessible Technology Services. Hadi has a Masters degree in computer science and is himself a screen reader user. so it’s a great opportunity to experience how your website might be experienced by someone using assistive technology.

Meetings are typically held on the 2nd Thursday of each month, 9:00am – 10:00am, in the Access Technology Center (MGH 064D). Refreshments are provided, but bringing along additional refreshments to share is welcome and encouraged!


AccessibleWeb@U is a community of UW web designers, developers, and other interested individuals who discuss and share ideas on accessible web design through their online discussion list and through monthly meetings.

Quarterly Meetings

Meetings are held quarterly in Allen Library Auditorium, typically from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.. Specific meeting dates and topics are announced on the email list.
