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: WordPress Text-Hover plug-in accessibility

UW Medicine Communications wants to add a plugin to Wordpress that creates a word bubble when you hover over certain text. The idea is that you could hover a mouse over a term, and the term would be defined in that word bubble. So, for example, you would hover over the abbreviation ERAS, and then a bubble would appear, and it would define the term -in this case, Electronic Residency Application Service.

Here's an example of a plugin that might do that https://wordpress.org/plugins/text-hover/<https://urldefense.com/v3/__https:/wordpress.org/plugins/text-hover/__;!!K-Hz7m0Vt54!kFWxLjeQQt4WaiA_OIHr19tuq6YPMVTuolryo69R_UGQrjR6q7RWQTCWUQ-avpMQ2HjOFqYsBdA$>.

We are going to look into the accessibility of this plug-in.

Topic 3: Accessibility of Concept3D Campus Mapping Solution
Concept3D is a product that is used by many universities for their online campus maps. For this particular meeting, we would like to focus on the accessibility and usability of the sidebar, using the following example maps:

Topic 4: Displaying a video in an iframe in a dialog

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:
