Toronto, Canada – 11 March 2020 – Siteimprove, the world’s most comprehensive digital optimization platform, is partnering with Canadian start-up Fable Tech Labs. This partnership with Fable makes it possible for digital teams to complement their existing automated accessibility efforts by continuously getting feedback from people with disabilities.

Across industries, digital teams face increasing demands to ensure products are accessible to a growing population of people with disabilities. While many Web Content and Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) can be automatically tested, it’s challenging for teams to evaluate how consumers using assistive technologies (including screen readers, switch systems, voice navigation, and magnification technology) will experience their products.
Siteimprove’s partnership with Fable addresses this by enabling digital teams to integrate people with disabilities into the product development cycle. Digital teams can engage Fable’s community of native assistive technology users on-demand to conduct user interviews, review prototypes, and test compatibility across different configurations.
Peter Bovin, VP of Partnerships at Siteimprove, looks forward to partnering with a growing accessibility focused start-up: “This partnership adds another dimension to accessibility testing by making it possible to integrate users like never before. Fable addresses the biggest challenge in implementing user-testing for accessibility: how time intensive it can be. We are excited to work closely with Fable to ensure the web is a more accessible place for all users.”
“Fable is very proud to be joining Siteimprove’s partnership ecosystem. The value of Siteimprove and Fable together is clear, as we have multiple joint customers. Together, we have the opportunity to unlock substantial value for companies around the world that are striving to make their digital products enjoyable for people with disabilities to use,” said Alwar Pillai, CEO at Fable Tech Labs.
