Creator of the Periodic Table of Testing confronts accessibility issues people face when online

Corecom Consulting is pleased to announce Adrian Stokes, Creator of the Periodic Table of Testing, as the keynote speaker at TestBoss on Tuesday 1st October 2019 from 6.00 – 8.30pm in central Leeds.

His presentation titled ‘What is wrong with accessibility?’ is set to gather plenty of interest from experienced leaders in Software Testing. Ady said:

“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 one-page quiz and how small things have a potentially big impact! After a short session finding the answers yourself, we will go through the answers together.”

“Don’t miss this opportunity to improve your knowledge in a relaxed and fun way and find out what you can do tomorrow to test and improve your applications accessibility.”


Your Quiz Host is Adrian ‘Ady’ Stokes. A long-time accessibility advocate with over 20 years’ experience in Audit, Business Intelligence and Test roles.  He is a great believer in community and helps create one in Leeds by co-organising the Ministry of Testing Meetup. WebAIM found that 98% of 1 million home pages failed WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) in August 2019. We can and must do better!

“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”.
