Birkir also is a three-time cancer survivor, two-time medalist at the Paralympics and founder of Blind Accessibility Testers, Learn how Birkir overcame multiple challenges to pursue his work in tech accessibility.

“It’s important that we have actual people who are blind and with disabilities doing that testing because they know best. I mean the standard is a good start but complying, conforming to a standard does not guarantee good experience.” ~
