Accessibility Solutions and Universal Design Services


Better Accessibility, Better Design

What We Do

WID values the lived experiences of people with disabilities as part of the vital process to make products and services accessible.

Our services support companies and organizations of all sizes via disability-led surveys and focus groups, user experience testing, climate assessments, and advisory services to drive better design and accessible experiences for employees, clients, and customers.

Surveys and Focus Groups

We offer survey and focus group research, which allows your organization to receive input from people with specific disabilities on the practical accessibility of your services or products.

By using our extensive U.S. based and global network, we engage multiple segments of the disability community to construct a holistic report, providing an extremely insightful and comprehensive actionable briefing of participants’ experiences, expectations, and concerns.

User Experience (UX) Testing

We provide a unique opportunity for your organization to better understand how people with disabilities access your products and services, learn what issues they encounter, and improve accessibility.

Questions your company may have:

  • Is our product easy for people with disabilities to use?
  • Are our digital assets accessible for screen-reader users?
  • Can a person with mobility disabilities easily access our physical locations?
  • Are our marketing assets inclusive of the disability community?
  • Does my video content have ASL interpretation and/or  captions?
  • Can users find answers to their questions?

Ultimately, user testing provides an avenue to ensure that the answer to all these questions is “yes.”

Conference/Event Accessibility

When planning for a conference or event either in-person or virtually, ensuring that it is digitally and physically accessible for all participants helps ensure that it is well attended and received.

We conduct an assessment of your conference or event’s accessibility services and then provide specific recommendations and offer resources to help ensure that your conference or event is both accessible and inclusive for everyone.

We also offer a concierge service to bring our expertise to your conference or event.
