Amaze & Accessibility Stories

Deque started accepting applications for the Amaze Accessibility Grant in March, which awards someone working to make the web more accessible with a $10,000 prize, as well as up to $5,000 for a travel stipend to attend next year's 2014 California State University Northridge's Annual International Technology and Persons with Disabilities Conference in San Diego, also known as CSUN.

As part of our participation in the upcoming Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD), we decided to extend the application deadline to May 9th to coincide with this fantastic event. If you are working on a project that aims to make the web accessible, there is still time to apply!

In addition to the grant extension, we are celebrating GAAD by releasing our "Accessibility Stories" this Thursday. Stay tuned for this excellent video series!

About 

For over fifteen years, Deque has been helping major corporations, government agencies, and other organizations ensure that their websites and mobile apps are accessible to everyone. We have more than fifteen years of history of serving the federal government, including undertaking the biggest accessibility program that's occurred in the United States government or anywhere. Deque also works with .edu's and mission-focused nonprofits to ensure that their materials and systems are usable and barrier free for users with disabilities. The company invented the first accessibility plug-in software, the first web-based testing platform, and the first server-based accessibility solution. All of these have been created in the service of helping our customers become accessible, advance the goals of their organization, and remove barriers for all users on the web.
