Dylan Barrell has been working in the accessibility field for over a decade. During this time, he has dedicated much of his energy and efforts to the development of efficient and effective accessible software.

As Chief Technology Officer at Deque, he has had the privilege of leading the Deque side of many large-scale accessibility remediation projects, and in advising Deque’s Fortune 500 customers on how to integrate accessibility into their development processes. He founded the axe family of accessibility testing products, and leads Deque’s software development teams in pushing the boundaries of accessibility at scale.

Fun fact about Dylan: when he visits big cities like New York, he still greets people in the street with “hello” or a nod (a habit he picked up while living in Switzerland). When asked why he still does it, Dylan responds with a line from a favorite song by the Waterboys: “Well, somebody might wave back”.
