Gutenberg testing with Assistive Technology at WordCamp EU

During WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. EU, the testing team will be running usability tests of the WordPress block editor. We’re hoping for some of those tests to be run using assistive technologyAssistive technology Assistive technology is an umbrella term that includes assistive, adaptive, and rehabilitative devices for people with disabilities and also includes the process used in selecting, locating, and using them. Assistive technology promotes greater independence by enabling people to perform tasks that they were formerly unable to accomplish, or had great difficulty accomplishing, by providing enhancements to, or changing methods of interacting with, the technology needed to accomplish such tasks. and by users with disabilities.

Jean-Baptiste Audras (@audrasjb) and Andrea Fercia (@afercia) will help coordinate this with the testing team. If you’re going to be attending WordCamp EU in Berlin and use any form of assistive technology or identify as a user with a disability, please comment on this post, so we can communicate with you to coordinate that!

We’re interested in any and all user testing: if you experience issues due to dyslexia, color blindness, use a screen reader, use zoom applications or any other input or output tool, please consider helping out!

Tests will be scheduled for 30 minute blocks and time slots are available on either Friday, 21 June or Saturday, 22 June.
