“We built Fable Upskill to give digital teams the custom accessibility training needed to serve people with disabilities in a meaningful way. We prioritized on-demand video-based content that’s role specific - because that’s what organizations told us they need.” - Alwar Pillai

Fable Tech Labs Inc. (“Fable”), a leading accessibility platform powered by people with disabilities, today announced Fable Upskill, a custom accessibility training product to help digital teams gain the skills they need to build inclusive products. Instead of focusing on generic, compliance-focused content, Fable Upskill provides teams with custom, video-based, and practical training informed by people with disabilities.

Fable Upskill helps make accessibility part of everyone’s job, so that products are designed inclusively from the start. It provides team members with the skills and knowledge that they specifically need, whether they are a designer, a researcher, or a developer. And Fable Upskill helps team leaders manage and track accessibility training, so they can advance their whole team with confidence.

“We built Fable Upskill to give digital teams the custom accessibility training needed to serve people with disabilities in a meaningful way. We prioritized on-demand video-based content that’s role specific - because that’s what organizations told us they need.” said Alwar Pillai, CEO and Co-Founder of Fable. “As leading organizations increasingly invest in accessibility research and testing, Fable is now also meeting the demand to help their teams upskill on accessibility.”
