About Accessibyte

A simple approach to assistive technology

Accessibility Advocate

Accessibyte was founded by Joe Jorgenson with one simple goal in mind: make better software for blind users!

Joe holds a master’s degree in special education, several certifications in blind rehabilitation and has a history of making goofy apps.

Years of teaching assistive technology to computer users proved they needed a new approach. So Joe set out to teach the most important computer skill of all…typing!

Working Together

Once teachers found out about Typio, ideas started pouring in. Record keeping, accessibility settings, you name it! Accessibyte is the culmination of hundreds of great ideas from many amazing teachers.

These ideas ultimately lead to the creation of Accessibyte Online, where students can log to study and play games without needing any outside accessibility software. Thank you to the users who brought us there!

Accessibyte’s Mission

Listen to Users

Getting accessibility right is tough. Accessibyte listens to users and builds features based on their feedback.

Explore Ideas

Sometimes it takes a weird idea to make amazing software. Just look at the Typing Pets. They’re weird, unique and super effective for learning!

Apps You Love

We knew Typio was a hit when teachers said their general classroom students were jealous of the blind and visually impaired kids’ software. Accessibyte builds towards that mindset with every app we make.

Keep it Simple

Some assistive technology can be complex. Our apps are simple and intuitive so there’s no struggle. Theaverage learning curve for our software is only 3 minutes.

Our passion

Hard work and dedication for users who need it most

Interfacing with teachers and students is such an amazing experience. The passion they have is simply amazing.

Accessibyte matches that passion with our own, building apps to support the teachers and students who inspire us. Working together, we can make something amazing.
