Accessible Technology

Events & Collaboration

Explore with Hadi

“Explore with Hadi” sessions 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!
