Accessibility Testing Participant Pool

About the Accessibility Testing Participant Pool

The Accessibility Testing Participant Pool was created in 2016 with funding from a Harvard PAIF grant. The pool is comprised of proficient assistive technology users who may be hired to test Harvard digital products. Assistive technology includes tools such as screen readers, screen magnification software, and alternative input devices. Once sufficient internal accessibility testing is completed by staff members themselves, pool members may be hired by staff members to test Harvard digital products for accessibility. Using the participant pool for moderated accessibility/usability testing provides feedback above and beyond meeting baseline accessibility standards.

Please note: This service is on pause for the 2020-2021 academic year. Please contact libraryux@harvard.edu if you have any questions.
