Pope Tech: Schedule and Track Manual Testing

Learn about this new feature with an array of resources.

Pope Tech is an enterprise-level web accessibility dashboard and evaluation system available to website editors using Drupal.

New Feature Announced

Kieran Kohlhase with UMN's Twin Cities Office Information Technology (OIT), recently sent the following message to the University Pope Tech community:

You can now use Pope Tech to schedule and track manual accessibility testing for your website(s). Both Group Managers and Content Contributors have access to this feature.

As you may know, automated accessibility testing tools are unable to detect all digital accessibility issues. Manual testing is essential to ensure that your web content is accessible to all of your visitors.

We have added a new section to the Pope Tech Self-Help Guide called Perform Manual Accessibility Testing. In addition to the link to the vendor article on how to use this new feature in Pope Tech, we added links to two excellent resources to help you conduct manual accessibility testing:


You can provide feedback on the Pope Tech Self-Help Guide by answering the "Was this page helpful?" prompt at the bottom of the page. After you select either "yes" or "no," a text field will appear in which you can enter qualitative feedback.

If you have questions or need additional help scheduling or tracking your manual accessibility testing in Pope Tech, please contact us at [email protected].
