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.
