After more than 23 years of experience with our tools, training, and expertise for digital accessibility, Deque has reached a significant acceleration point. Axe accessibility testing tools, including axe-core, the world’s most popular accessibility testing library, axe DevTools, axe Auditor, and axe Monitor, are currently in the process of dramatic refinement for greater accuracy, integration, automation, and use of artificial intelligence (AI) / machine learning (ML). 

In this presentation, learn how and why our dedication to the mantra of no false positives has never been more important. Every day we work with our unparalleled accessibility testing data set, customers, and experts to simplify the testing process. Our large data set demands that we use solid data management practices and human-centric testing to validate how we use ML algorithms and improve our computer vision technology. Rather than using ML models as a source of truth for digital accessibility on their own, we use them to guide teams of qualified experts toward more accessible design. With the combined strength of our enormous data set together with consistent oversight from real human experts, we deliver the fastest and most accurate digital accessibility testing results available, for today and into the future.
