Our work

We work with impact-driven start-ups and innovative organisations who want their products and services to be accessible to all. Here are some highlights from our recent work.

The laptop screen is shown to their right, with the call being live captioned. The main speaker is a dark skinned person wearing a hijab and glasses, and 3 other participants are at the bottom of the screen, in smaller windows. In the bottom right corner, a yellow service dog bounds towards the wheelchair user.
