Our Digital Accessibility Empathy Lab (DEAL) provides an extraordinary experience for your team. With the help of our coaches, they can take part in engaging workshops and activities to gain a better understanding of how people with disabilities navigate the digital world.
An empathy lab is an interactive event where you learn what digital accessibility means, how people with disabilities surf the internet and what tools they use.
We do this on the basis of configurations and experiments. We also bring simulation tools such as augmented reality headsets to complete the experience.
An inspiring experience of discovering digital accessibility
What can you expect?
- In your office, we set up a maximum of 11 workshop stands for about 2 hours. As you move from one stand to the next, you will discover, among other things, how a blind person can use a smartphone, how to adapt the screen to compensate for problems with concentration, vision, fine mobility, etc.
- Experts in digital accessibility guide you through disability simulations and the use of assistance tools
- Via your smartphone, you can access descriptive sheets of personas representing different disability situations
- Speakers come and share their experience as a person with a disability
- In a video corner, we broadcast testimonies of life with a disability

Participating in an empathy lab is particularly useful for all digital professionals, communication teams and social media managers. Through experiments, activities and workshops, they gain a better understanding of the impact of digital accessibility and the needs of the target audience.
No prior knowledge of digital accessibility is required.
