AccessWorks Usability & Accessibility Testing Portal

Connecting Business to Users with Disabilities - The most loyal customers in the world!

Now you can do accessibility testing along with your usability testing! Knowbility and Loop11 have created the AccessWorks database of web users with disabilities. Loop 11 is a powerful web-based tool for remote unmoderated usability testing. AccessWorks is an extensive database of users with disabilities. Put them together and you get access to participants using screen readers and other assistive devices reporting their first-hand reactions to your site or app.

I first met Sharron and the wonderful Knowbility staff soon after I moved to Austin in 2006. In fact, a mutual friend and colleague invited me to Knowbility's Christmas party and I just showed up. Since the evening of that party, I've learned (and unlearned and relearned) so much about making technology accessible to people with disabilities. While I don't do the technical stuff, I now advocate to my clients (and my web developer sons) that they need to make their websites accessible to everybody. I've also developed a specialty in my professional area of Usability to include people with disabilities in my user research. What an eye opener! The web is such a wonderful place and offers so many opportunities, everyone should be able to use it. And there's a role that everyone can play in making this happen - whether you code, do research, or simply advocate. It sure has changed my life, both personally and professionally.
