Invotra’s enABLE Lab – Raising awareness and replicating the experiences of accessible software users

The purpose of the enABLE Lab is to create an environment in which we are able to provide Invotra’s workforce (and any other interested parties) an environment in which we can continue to align and educate ourselves on the importance of accessibility.

One of the hardest aspects of creating accessible software is the difficulty faced in replicating an “accessible experience”. Accessibility is a very wide topic and requires you to adopt an inclusive mindset, it was partly this issue that we wanted to address with the enABLE Lab. Invotra wants to provide anyone with the opportunity to log on to their laptop and use software and equipment which replicates the experience of an accessible software user.

The enABLE Lab has been a resounding success. Just recently, Invotra’s head office was visited by the Minister of State for Apprenticeships and Skills, Rt Hon Anne Milton MP. Anne met with Léonie Watson, accessibility engineer, member of the W3C advisory board and co-chair of the W3C Web Platform. Léonie is an accessible software user who walked Anne through her experience at the lab.
