May 14, 2019 at 12pm ET: Mobile Assistive Technology and Testing Techniques

Mobile devices continue to disrupt and change the way we live our lives. They allow us to communicate in new and innovative ways, and have provided new opportunities for people with disabilities to be more independent.

However, just like web-based content, a mobile experience needs to be created with accessibility in mind to allow equal and independent access.

In this webinar, Joe Humbert, accessibility engineer at TPG, will discuss the available assistive technology and operating systems settings that people with disabilities use, as well as provide an overview on how to evaluate native mobile applications to ensure they conform to the WCAG 2.1 accessibility guidelines.

Join us on May 14th at 12pm ET for this educational and engaging webinar. Register at https://zoom.us/webinar/register/4415566340161/WN_EZHzHqTXTAKrtRdfuQVuDA

May 21, 2019 at 12pm ET: Overcoming the Potential Obstacles of Manual Testing with a Screen Reader

Let's face it: screen reader testing is cumbersome. Without comprehensive training (as well as expert level knowledge) of a desktop screen reader, the process of performing manual screen reader compatibility tests can be daunting and often riddled with headaches and missteps.

Join Larry Lewis, Director of Government Sales and Strategic Partnerships, on May 21 at 12pm ET as he shows you how to make manual screen reader accessibility testing fun, informative, and efficient!

This webinar will identify a number of barriers and difficulties that manual accessibility testing pose to QA testers and developers. Larry will share potential testing pitfalls and tips on how to avoid them, and he will demonstrate a time and cost saving alternative for identifying, capturing, sharing, and remediating usability defects within websites and web applications - TPG's JAWS Inspect.

Don't miss your chance to learn how to make screen reader testing significantly easier. Register here: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/8015566338866/WN_kn8bdCE_TU6JCDkE3l8TuA
