About Deque Systems
Digital equality. It's our mission, our vision, and our passion.
Companies that want to make their websites and mobile applications accessible to people with disabilities trust Deque to help them.
We have helped thousands of companies from technology leaders like Google and Microsoft, the top US banks and insurance companies, the top retailers, the top airlines, the top hotel chains and the biggest government agencies.
We help our customer’s development teams find and fix accessibility problems on their web and mobile apps, even if they have never done it before. When they are ready, our customer’s development teams use our tools and take Deque University Courses so they can build and maintain their apps, on their own, and ensure they remain accessible.
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 One 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.
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.
