Site Unseen: Website Accessibility Testing for Academic Libraries with Visually-Impaired Users

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We performed a usability test of UNC Libraries database access page with users who are low vision or blind. While automated checkers like WebAIM's WAVE can assess and fix existing issues, they cannot detect everything that makes a webpage easy to use or replace the experiences of users meeting their information needs. We adapted our protocol for running a usability test and recruiting participants to ensure our methods were inclusive.
