Fable Tech Labs is a Toronto-based startup that is changing how companies build accessible digital products. Fable helps companies engage people with disabilities in their development processes.



We started Fable in April of this year. We built our first prototype in a couple of hours,and it was pretty exciting. We then built a better one in a couple of weeks and put it in front of a handful of potential customers. The feedback we got fuelled us through May and June to build and launch our beta. Today, the product is working great, we’ve got customers using it on a regular basis to engage our community, and we’ve got an ambitious vision for where it can go next.
