- What is the Disability and Accessibility Network?
The Disability and Accessibility Network is a group of people with disabilities, visible and invisible who experience challenges online or with online products. As a member of the network, you’ll get hands on with our products and services. These could be at early stages of development or already established and we’re thinking of making improvements. You’ll take part in surveys, focus groups and interviews with us.
- Why did Texthelp launch the Disability and Accessibility Network?

The Disability and Accessibility Network is a new forum that will allow us to connect with you and place you at the heart of our product design process. This will help us make sure that our products are as accessible and user friendly as possible.
