About Helen Burge

After leaving university Helen worked in testing and part of all her roles involved accessibility testing. This is because she felt users were unappreciated in the need to make websites and applications accessible. Helen worked closely with developers to help learn the most effective way to find and report issues. From this, she was able to create a large accessibility offering for Applause from scratch. Since then she has worked for a few other companies. Helen looks forward to continuing learning and improving what she knows and applying it to her ongoing work.

Helen’s main focus is the user, no matter who they are, having the optimum experience.
