AudioEye A11iance Team

At AudioEye, we work with a team of testers to learn from their firsthand experiences of using assistive technologies, like screen readers, so we can better understand their unique challenges and continuously improve on our web accessibility solutions.

Who The A11iance Is

Our A11iance community is made up of a group of people with varying disabilities and backgrounds. Currently and in the past we’ve tested with low-and-no vision users, users with cerebral palsy, keyboard-only users, users with limited mobility, and colorblind users. Our testers are equally as varied in their experiences outside of testing with AudioEye; our group consists of singers, writers, medical advocates, teachers, trainers and customer service workers. Some have worked professionally as testers, while some are new to the process with AudioEye.

A11iance Advocates

Our A11iance Advocates are a group of individuals who have been testing with AudioEye for a significant amount of time and assist in spreading the word about new testing opportunities, platform updates, AudioEye news and more. Our advocates receive a small monthly stipend for their time. All opinions expressed are their own.
