Building and testing accessible digital products

Building and testing accessible digital products


We share insights into building fully accessible digital products through personal stories and expert talks on web development and quality assurance.

The accessibility of digital products is not a niche concern. By building accessibility features into the solutions we create, we support not only people with disabilities but a much wider user base. To raise awareness about the importance of building an inclusive digital world, we’ve invited Mirsada Bakić, an active member of the Association of Blind Persons of the Republic of Macedonia. Mirsada will share her personal journey and unique perspective on accessibility in digital products while our web developers and software testers will provide the know-how about building digital products accessible to everyone.
