Together we can #MakeTheWebAccessible
People for Research are gearing up to launch a new exciting project. We introduced the topic a while ago on our blog, but now we are ready to announce a new campaign that will run during 2016 to promote online and digital accessibility, as well as encourage our clients and non-clients to increase the number of people with disabilities they invite to take part in research and usability testing.
‘Make the web accessible’ is the motto of our project, as well as the hashtag – #MakeTheWebAccessible – that we are going to use on social media to help spread the word.
Not only do we plan to publish blogs, interviews and case studies about digital accessibility and usability testing, but we are also going to support events and, hopefully, establish partnerships with companies and organisations that work towards the same goal.
Meet our first partner
We are pleased to announce the name of our first partner: the MS Bristol Therapy Centre. People for Research was recently confirmed as a sponsor of the Players Sprint Triathlon, hosted by the centre and scheduled to happen on 2nd October 2016 in Bristol.
The MS Bristol Therapy Centre is part of a national network of similar centres, which support and provide a range of treatments and therapies for people with multiple sclerosis in Bristol, Somerset, North Somerset, Bath and North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire.
Besides working with other companies and organisations, we have also invited bloggers to write guest posts that we will publish on our blog over the next few months. Selina Litt, the founder of the blog Insight Out, is our first guest so keep an eye out for her blog on the People for Research website!
Our team members will also be in the spotlight, sharing their knowledge and top tips to better support people with accessibility issues who take part in market research and usability testing.
We are currently looking to grow the number of partners willing to work with us to #MakeTheWebAccessible, so do get in touch if your company, organisation or charity would like to be involved. We are also happy to publish more guest blogs, so email firstname.lastname@example.org if you feel like sharing your feedback and experiences.
