Fable is powered by community

Fable’s community is passionate about the digital world being accessible to everyone. As a team of people who rely on assistive technology, we have a unique ability to identify barriers, assess experiences, and solve problems. At Fable, we believe that equality, inclusivity, and access for all aren’t just ideas in fairytales, but a reality that we are creating with our partners.

What do we do?

User testing

"Mobile, desktop, and tablet graphic"

On the Fable platform, we analyze web and mobile experiences with diverse users. Products should be able to customize according to any user on any device, and our feedback helps companies do exactly that.

Co-design

Through meetings, we work together with companies to design accessible products from the get go. Whether it’s giving advice on an early design prototype or information architecture, some partners are eager for our input as early as possible.

Create content

""

As a community, we co-author content to support Fable’s partners. This can involve sharing your expertise about your assistive technology, trends in the accessibility space, or even your booklist!

Step 2: Skill assessment

After you’ve filled out the form and shared your engagement preferences, you may be asked to participate in a skill assessment task using your assistive technology. This helps us match you with partners more effectively!

Step 3: Meet Sam

Once you have completed the skill assessment, Sam, our community manager, will set up a meeting with you. It is an opportunity to learn more about your interests and how we can work together.
