AudioEye Partners with Autism Organizations
AudioEye has begun collaborating with the Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center (SARRC) and its sister nonprofit, First PlaceAZ, to deploy the range of AudioEye digital accessibility solutions, including the Ally Managed Service, to ensure public-facing websites are accessible. Key elements of the Ally platform is the ability to use voice commands to navigate sites and a screen reader.
The AudioEye platform monitors sites, automatically detecting and fixing common issues of accessibility for individuals using the range of assistive technology. The Ally Toolbar, a proprietary assistive tool, is placed directly on client sites, allowing users to customize and enhance their experiences.
"The Ally Toolbar has a range of considerations, including dyslexic fonts, adjustments to color contrast, font size and navigation, keyboard controls, a player that will read visitors content and the ability to use voice commands to navigate. The toolbar serves individuals who face barriers from low vision to paraplegia," said Todd Bankofier, AudioEye's CEO, in a statement. "We're honored to provide these outstanding organizations the full range of our technology and service.
"All three organizations share a like-minded dedication to creating an inclusive world," Bankofier continued. "Through a partnership that will provide technology and service to the Arizona-based non-profits, AudioEye will ensure their websites and related digital content are accessible to individuals with a range of disabilities."
"SARRC and First Place are dedicated to empowering people living with autism to thrive in society, including our digital society," said Denise Resnik, co-founder of SARRC and founder, president, and CEO of First Place AZ, in a statement. "AudioEye technology has been designed to address digital accessibility across the range of disabilities, and we're happy it will help ensure our sites are more accessible and usable for everyone."
"We have a shared appreciation of the importance of inclusivity. We are excited to partner with AudioEye and deploy their game-changing accessibility technology on our sites," said Dr. Daniel Openden, president and CEO of SARRC, in a statement.
AudioEye's Ally Toolbar will provide enhanced accessibility and usability for the U.S. Social Security Administration's website.
Government web designers can now add accessibility options, including voice navigation and screen reading, to sites.
