Help us help you.

When we develop products, it’s always good to hear from the people who use them so we can make sure we’re hitting our mark. And because our egos are (mostly) in check, we like to collaborate with other inventors to help them get their products ready for market. It’s all just part of our mission to make the world a more accessible place where people with vision loss and multiple disabilities can lead the most independent and productive lives possible. Keep reading to see how you can get involved.

Test a Product

As a product tester, you’ll be providing a great service to not just us, but to the entire community with vision loss by making sure our designs are not only useful, but easy-to-use. All you need to do is qualify and we’ll get in touch with some instruction and some products to test.

  • APH is seeking field testers for the soon-to-be-released update to the Code Jumper App! This update will transition users from accessible block-based coding to text code written in the Python programming language! The field test is set to begin on January 8th, 2024 and will wrap up on January 29th, 2024. The requirements are that you must already have a Code Jumper kit and have an intermediate to advanced knowledge of the components in the kit. The deadline to complete the Code Jumper Field Tester Interest Form is December 28th, 2023.

    Additionally, if you would like to be included in the APH field tester database for future opportunities, please complete the APH Field Tester Form.

  • Are you interested in testing upcoming products in the 2023-2024 school year? As part of our vision to make the world a more accessible place, we want to hear your insights to better design innovative products and services for lifelong success and to provide the best possible solutions for challenges that arise in the classroom and beyond.

    Even if you have participated in a field test or shared your contact information in the past, please update our records by filling out a new copy of the APH Field Tester Form.
