We believe in the power of knowledge

So let's look at how accessibility affects the digital space

98.1% of 1,000,000 websites tested in February 2020 failed accessibility testing - and that’s just from automated tests!

22% of Canadians have at least one disability that affects their sight, hearing, or dexterity. 54% of adults living with a disability currently go online.

88% of online shoppers won’t return to a website after having a bad user experience. When you make your website accessible you give everyone the best user experience.

Does your website work for everyone?

These are ways we are able to help you find out.

Through an empathetic human lens we aim to ensure your success in reaching full accessibility and providing ALL your users with the best experience possible.

Testing

Our accessibility testing identifies key elements in your website’s code and design that could be causing your users problems.

Consulting

We help you reach your marginalized users through a step-by-step guide of what your digital solution needs. We Work collaboratively with your team, teaching and expanding your accessibility knowledge base.

Workshop

We want to help everyone take a step towards a future with more inclusive technologies, so we provide immersive educational workshops that empower you and your team to maximize accessibility.

Design & Implementation

Whether you already have a website or are starting from scratch, we work with you to build creative, quality and inclusive applications that give ALL your users a superior digital experience.

What our clients have to say

Stepping boldly into the future of tech

We believe in a future of tech that is inclusive for all. This future sadly won’t be realized without an evolution in how we work. As being in the only 5% of tech companies founded by women, we are passionate about seeing the industry become more inclusive, diverse, and equitable.

Our years and combined experiences means the team brings a novel perspective to the table. We take these perspectives and work to actively shift industry norms every day through the products we build, by advocating for inclusion, and by mentoring others as they navigate barriers in tech.

Ask more about how you can be a part of this exciting change, whether you're propelling your business forward or learning more about how to make the digital world more inclusive.
