    Our Contributions to the Accessibility Community

    The accessibility community was collectively struggling to agree on a common accessibility testing ruleset. We decided to make ours open source in 2015 and have since seen over Thirty Million downloads as it’s made it’s way to becoming the standard of the industry. Coupled with a free browser extension, axe is used by tens of thousands on a weekly basis, helping make the web a better and more accessible place for everyone.

    In addition to our open source work, Deque offers accessibility course scholarships for people with disabilities on Deque University.

    Our Team

    Everyone on the Deque Team shares a passion for providing equal access to the web regardless of ability.  We have helped develop international accessibility guidelines in W3C working groups, and many of our Subject Matter Experts spent years working inside large Fortune 500 companies on accessibility before joining the Deque team.
