Hi everyone,

It is almost time for our monthly Web Accessibility/Usability Meet-up!
Please join us for another casual and friendly virtual meeting to discuss some accessibility challenges.

Topic 1: Review website/applications
Reviewing your site/application for accessibility is the main component of this meet-up and we all learn from such reviews.
As always, let me know if you would like to review your site/application for accessibility.

Topic 2: UMAC UW Colors Contrast Table
UMAC has created a UW Colors Contrast table so users can check which combinations of brand colors meet WCAG contrast requirements. The visual complexity can make it difficult to fully communicate passing combinations of colors. We will be exploring and brainstorming how we can communicate passing contrast standards without making it too noisy for screen reader users.
You can find the link here:
Note: If you are not on-campus, you will need to be logged in to the UW VPN in order to access this site.

About Monthly Web Accessibility/Usability Meet-up
Our meetings usually consist of two 30 minute segments. The first 30 minutes of our meetings are dedicated to casually reviewing your projects. This generally includes lots of hands on testing and code review. If you are working on a project and would like to get accessibility feedback from your peers, please let us know and we will add it to the agenda. We always encourage you to bring your own sites and topics, as it is a great learning experience for everyone.
Then for the last half of the meeting we have some topics we would like to bring to you to discuss, although we may not have time to cover all of them in depth.

How to Join the Mailing List
We send our announcements typically a week prior to the meetup through various internal mailing lists, including the accessibleweb mailing list - which is open to the public. Please subscribe to that list to receive the announcements if you haven’t already done it yet. You can do so by accessing this link:
