Events & Collaboration

Accessible Technology Office Hours

Do you have a question about making your website, digital documents, videos, or other information technology accessible? Members of the IT Accessibility Team will be available to answer your questions on the first Thursday of every month, 11:00am – noon, in HUB 238. Drop in any time during that hour to say hello or to explore accessibility one-on-one with a member of our team. NOTE: We will not be having office hours in February, but will resume our regular schedule in March.

Monthly UW Web Accessibility and Usability Meetup

These monthly meetups, formerly known as “Explore with Hadi”, provide an opportunity for UW web developers and designers to discuss accessibility and usability issues in a relaxed, casual setting, and provide friendly feedback on 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, 10:00am – 11:00am, in the Access Technology Center (MGH 064D). Refreshments are provided, but bringing along additional refreshments to share is welcome and encouraged!
