Accessibility experts at EVERFI and CVS Health share their Fable experience

Reading time: 2 minutes 

Introduction

Last month we hosted a customer showcase with EVERFI and CVS Health, as part of our new event series Experts with Fable. With examples from both early and mature stage accessibility journeys, Fable customers shared how product teams collaborate with people with disabilities in user research and thanks to Fable, have been successful in ‘shifting accessibility left’ in their respective organizations.

“We’ve come miles as a result of our work with Fable. Fable Engage enables consistent and reliable process of connecting remotely with people with disabilities who use a variety of different assistive technologies in their everyday lives, to evaluate products and collaborate with us.” 

– Annie Hendrick, Senior UX Researcher at EVERFI

Annie Hendrick, Senior UX Researcher at EVERFI, presented her talk, ‘Building Out Accessibility Research Practices’. Annie goes in depth to demonstrate how Fable Engage enables reliable collaboration with and feedback from people with disabilities, strategies to get buy-in from your team, and how to integrate process changes and demonstrate impact.

Greg Weinstein, Senior Accessibility Designer and Inclusive Research Lead at CVS Health, presented his talk, ‘Breaking the Feedback Loop: Building Empathy and Promoting Accessibility’. Greg addresses the imbalance of typical UX data capture by centering the experiences of people with disabilities in user research, offers examples of how to break the feedback loop of inaccessible research and inaccessible design, and how CVS Health’s Design Accessibility team has generated enthusiastic support for accessibility by developing empathy for the diverse challenges people face when interacting with CVS Health.

“Now, thanks largely to our partnership with Fable, we have a replicable, ongoing user research process with people with disabilities … that has been a very important as one of the pieces of our inclusive design work at CVS.”
