Partnering with Oregon Commission for the Blind

In 2020, we hired our first blind testers on the PLUS QA Accessibility Testing team. The was the result of 7 months of collaboration with the Oregon Commission for the Blind.

Thanks to this partnership and the unique perspectives of our visually impaired testers, we have learned so much about both Accessibility Testing and working with assistive technologies.

Working with testers who experience accessibility in their daily lives allows us to prioritize accessibility issues that have a real impact on usability. We are able to test software from perspective of people who need these issues to be addressed.

In addition to the obvious benefits of hiring screenreader experts, we are excited to give those with disabilities a platform where their voice can be heard in the realm of digital accessibility.
