First-hand insight into digital accessibility
As part of our work, we often recommend that customers do discovery or research, and test their products, with people who have access needs, not just with automated code checkers. We have a Research Panel of people with access needs who want to improve digital accessibility.

As a leading New Zealand owned and operated digital accessibility consultancy Access Advisors’ goal is to help make New Zealand a more digitally inclusive place. To do that we need people with access needs to help demonstrate the problems faced with poorly designed websites and apps. You might use a screen reader, or be on the autistic spectrum, or struggle to use a mouse because of joint pain, or have a combination of age- related issues. But if you’ve ever had problems with websites or apps then we would love to hear from you.
We believe that if our clients can see the problems people have first-hand they are more likely to understand...
Weaving accessibility into the design process right from the start will help avoid expensive reworking later. If accessibility is checked at each major mile stone then there should be no major surprises at the end. This saves money and makes a better product.
Our researchers can conduct usability testing with a particular focus. We have a Research panel with access needs for usability testing of your products as early and as often as you need to meet your project’s requirements.

One of our key drivers at Access Advisors is to raise awareness of accessibility and access needs across the motu (country). Watching someone struggle with the interface that you have crafted can be one of the most confronting things in interface design. But it can also be one of the most powerful motivators for change.
Discovery activities help teams fully understand the users and their needs. Upfront research with people with disabilities can help generate interesting and innovative user requirements from the beginning.
