2 to 3:30 p.m.
Place: 
Virtual

Who is this for?

UCSF Siteimprove users who create and maintain public-facing UCSF websites, whether it's a UCSF Drupal Site Builder website or a custom website. We want to create and support a culture that sustains the continuous monitoring practice of public-facing UCSF websites for accessibility using Siteimprove and other tools.

What happens?

We start the session with a brief message about digital accessibility and then we set the agenda based on the needs of the attendees.

Agenda items are prioritized first with questions specific to the Siteimprove accessibility module then by general digital accessibility questions. If you are new to digital accessibility, don't feel pressured to help create the agenda. You can can simply absorb and/or ask questions.

We typically discuss best practices for using Siteimprove's accessibility reports and how to resolve the WCAG issues it automatically flags. Get to know others who are committed to creating inclusively-designed and compliant public-facing UCSF websites where everyone, especially those who use assistive technologies, can access online information.

Because accessibility is a continuous process, we invite you to share the progress you're making on your website's Siteimprove Accessibility score and other steps forward on the path to digital accessibility. We love to celebrate your successes. We're also here to help you with your challenges.

Digital Accessibility Q&A

You get to set the agenda with your questions about onboarding users and sites to Siteimprove and using Siteimprove's accessibility module. Common topics include:

  • Onboarding new users for Siteimprove
  • Verifying your page count is accurate
  • Prioritizing the accessibility issues 
  • Exporting reports on PDFs and videos for manual checks

If we don't have the answers, we can explore the Siteimprove Training Academy or point you to other resources.
