Details

Join us for a discussion on automated / enterprise testing tools for accessibility. Several people requested a session on automated testing tools to help with the accessibility workload. There's a lot of demand out there for this and rather than presenting one tool / process the idea of a panel shaped up. However, we need more people / perspectives on this.

Are you in the process of evaluating automated testing tools for your accessibility work? Do you want to learn what these tools can do for you? Don't miss this meetup.

Also, please feel free to post / send us questions ahead of time.
