No Mouse Challenge - Thursday, May 19

Perform your job for at least 15 minutes without using your mouse 

Why is this important?No-mouse challenge logo: computer mouse with line across it.

Using keyboard-only commands is a good, quick accessibility test. If a document, application or system cannot support mouse-less operation, it may not support assistive technology or accessibility tools.

In addition, keyboard shortcuts often allow you to more efficiently perform tasks. Try these shortcuts to help you during the challenge.

What was it like to use only your keyboard?

Once you finished your challenge, join us at one of the Global Accessibility Awareness Day events listed below on Thursday, May 19, and tell us about your experience. You can get a sticker and a treat for completing the keyboard challenge!
