Handshake Accessibility Resources

Information on accessibility options for Handshake Virtual Career Fairs can be found here.  Highlights include:

  • Handshake virtual career fairs tool is designed to be compatible with screen readers that those with visual impairment can use to convert text, buttons, or images into speech or braille.

  • The Handshake website and fairs are designed to be navigable for keyboard-only users

  • Color contrast in the virtual fair design is designed so that screen elements are more easily readable for the visually-impaired

  • The Handshake support team can also provide an interpreter for live captioning if requested
