WeCo hand-selects, trains and manages a team of Accessibility Testers who receive our exclusive accessibility/UX (user-experience) training. These experts are living with one or more disability. Our Accessibility Testers also excel at using assistive technology, such as Braille lap tops (shown at left), screen readers and magnifiers, speech recognition software, modified mouses and more (when their given disability requires such device use.)
Upon successfully completing WeCo certification training, each Accessibility Tester earns the title of “Certified Test Consultant” or “CTC.” They are then welcomed into our Certified Test Team.
