thoughtbot is committed to digital accessibility, conforming to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, Level A and AA, and complying with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) effective communication requirements and other applicable regulations.
We create working, maintainable, and understandable software that is enjoyable and easy to use. Beyond that, designing and building quality software means improving the security, privacy, and accessibility of the product, and includes improvements of life and reduction of harm for all users and contributors.
Everyone, regardless of device or ability, should be able to enjoy visiting thoughtbot.com. This means building our website in a robust and accessible way.
To accomplish this, we have partnered with eSSENTIAL Accessibility to administer our accessibility program and oversee its governance. Their accessibility program evaluates our digital products on an ongoing basis in accordance with best practices and is supported by a diverse team of accessibility professionals, including users of assistive technologies. The platform, moreover, goes beyond minimum compliance requirements by making an assistive CX technology application available to customers who have trouble typing, gesturing, moving a mouse, or reading. The application is free to download, and it incorporates tools such as mouse and keyboard replacements, voice recognition, speech enablement, hands-free/touch-free navigation, and more.
We want to hear from you if you encounter any accessibility barriers on our digital properties. Please contact our Customer Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
