Hi All,

Global Accessibility Awareness Day is Thursday (May 21), and in building up
to a full day of activities and events on the University of Washington
campus, we've just launched a new website, http://nomouse.org which
encourages everyone to "Take the #NoMouse Challenge!"

Try checking a website or an online course without a mouse. Just use the
keyboard alone, and answer these question:

1. Can I access all features?
2. Can I operate all buttons, sliders, and other controls?
3. Can I easily tell where I am on the page?

Accessibility for people who are physically unable to use a mouse is just
one of many web accessibility issues, but it is perhaps the easiest to
test, so we're encouraging everyone on the planet to try it.

Please help spread the word!

Go to http://nomouse.org for more info.
