99-Minute Workshops, the brand new addition to Ministry of Testing’s learning platform available only to our Pro Members.

Our short, instructor-led, workshops are the perfect way to explore and experiment with new ideas, keep updated with new tools and approaches to testing. Broadening your understanding of what it means to be a valuable member of a modern software development team.

Interactive Accessibility Quiz

This workshop is a unique way to learn about the accessibility issues people face when online or on their smart devices. Using real-life examples, we ask just one simple question… "What is wrong in terms of accessibility?" Ady Stokes answers this and more questions on the 17th of August 2020, 12 PM (UK Time) with the workshop Interactive Accessibility Quiz.

After this workshop, you will be able to

  • understand a broad range of issues that affect people’s ability to participate,
  • explain why accessible products and services help everyone and is more than just compliance,
  • apply new test techniques as soon as you get back to work and
  • evaluate your own products and services in different ways that inform the overall quality for a wider group of users.

About This Workshop

Whether you are new to accessibility, have some understanding or have experience with checking compliance, this is the workshop for you. Covering not only compliance to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines but readability, usability and emotional accessibility too, you will be amazed how much can be packed into a short quiz! And how small things have a potentially big impact! After a short session finding the answers themselves, we will go through the answers together.

Spoiler! There are 10 images, 11 answers to find but many more than 11 things that could cause issues.

As well as showing how the experience can be made better for everyone the quiz discusses issues for those with autism, ADHD, cerebral palsy, motor neurone disease, dyslexia and others.  It includes tips on readability using extensive research findings and the latest better practices available.  I’m constantly learning so the quiz is evolving as I refine the maximum learning opportunities for a single session.

“I believe accessibility is fundamental to applications and greatly undervalued causing many problems for lots of users. I'm trying to spread the message that accessibility isn't about disability, it’s about inclusion!”
