Fable, a leading digital accessibility platform, has announced the hiring of Jennifer Chadwick as Senior Accessibility Specialist. With over 15 years in the accessibility industry, Chadwick joins Fable’s innovation team to expand product offerings that enable organizations to operationalize and scale accessibility.

“Fable clients have an innovative advantage with their products.”
Over one billion people live with a disability globally. This largely unaddressed market segment is increasing proportionally due to an aging population. As everything from media to commerce and healthcare is moving online, digital inclusion and accessibility are vital. However, the digital products and websites we depend on are still often inaccessible to people with disabilities.
Fable’s innovation team is a thought leader in the accessibility space – elevating the voices of people with disabilities and challenging organizations to think differently about accessibility problems.
“There’s incredible value in Fable’s testing community,” says Chadwick. “Insights from usability testing, combined with Fable’s expert, role-based training is a powerful combination for any digital team. Practitioners adopt an inclusive mindset which they apply to design, development, content, and brand – early and often. This gives Fable clients an innovative advantage with their products. I’m thrilled to be a part of delivering this.”
