Each month, AudioEye fixes millions of website problems for its clients; without these fixes, site visitors are left behind -- including those customers accessing websites through the use of assistive technologies such as those provided by Microsoft, Apple, Google, and others. AudioEye clients that implement the Ally+ solution receive a compliance certification seal that, through the adoption and application of internationally accepted accessibility standards, allows them to clearly and confidently demonstrate and promote their conscientious commitment to ensuring equal access to their digital properties (limited exclusions apply).
Providing full access is the right thing to do, but it is also empowers customers, which makes it great for business. To learn more or to get started today, please visit www.audioeye.com for more information. AudioEye is Your Web Accessibility Ally™.
