Explore how Perkins Access has helped ensure accessibility for websites visited by thousands of users every day.
Perkins Access hosted a mock election to test Clear Ballot's digital voting systems.
“We have the devices, we can get them somewhere for the study. But Perkins understands the etiquette of working with disabled people, they have connections to the disabled communities, a great campus, great facilities and underlying infrastructure. A lot of the things that would be difficult to impart to researchers who have never worked with disabled communities before, we don’t have to sweat that at all.”

IT staff at UNC Walks Away with a Better Understanding of Accessibility Requirements
Perkins Access trains IT staff at UNC on WCAG 2.0 A and AA criteria.
"Being an inclusive university means including people with disabilities, as well as people of different races and ethnicities. We expected people who attended training to be not just better informed, but really more aware of the impact of accessibility.
