About Deque

Digital equality. It's our mission, our vision, and our passion. We believe that websites, mobile applications, and digital content should be accessible to people with disabilities - and we're passionate about creating technology that can make that vision a reality.

About our Products

Our products are used by global brands to test and fix the accessibility of their mission-critical, high-traffic websites.  Our products have earned a reputation for reliability, performance and robustness because we ensure that they are well architected, carefully implemented and thoroughly tested.

The back-end of our products are increasingly reliant on node.js, relational and nosql databases.  We have implemented some applications using the Java stack. We have products to test native mobile apps on iOS and Android.  Our products are integrated with popular development tools such as Jira and Selenium and we routinely develop browser extensions to make our products easy for web developers to use.  Check out our website for product descriptions.

We are active contributors to the open source community and have recently released our aXe rules engine as an open source project on GitHub.
