AudioEye Collaborates with ADP in a Commitment to Accessible Technology
TUCSON, Ariz., Oct. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — AudioEye, Inc. (AEYE) (“AudioEye” or the Company”) today announced that it is collaborating with ADP® (ADP) to further enrich the user experience of ADP’s human capital management (HCM) solution by making it digitally accessible to clients with employees with disabilities. AudioEye is transforming how the world experiences digital content by providing technology that solves accessibility issues. The two companies teamed during the 2016 HR Technology Conference & Exposition® to provide attendees with an overview of the capabilities.
ADP is the first company in its industry to embed AudioEye’s tools. They currently are using them in the employee and manager portions of many of the company’s HCM solutions. The technology is automatically deployed to employees, and the underlying content is optimized to work with the tools to create a seamless interactive experience.
AudioEye delivers technology that addresses the legal compliance risk associated with digital accessibility. It also enables companies to reach the five to 10 percent of the population who have a disability and who are otherwise unable to fully access digital content. AudioEye’s technology and tools address nearly all user accessibility issues for individuals who have vision, hearing, motor and intellectual or cognitive disabilities, as well as those who are color blind, dyslexic, learning to read, learning a second language, or may prefer listening instead of reading. The software is easy to implement, free to the end user and device agnostic.
The collaboration between the two companies makes it easier for users of ADP’s cloud-based services to use those resources.
For example, a visitor to a website without a disability would take advantage of reading content, viewing video, and hearing audio. For people with disabilities, their experience through ADP’s collaboration with AudioEye would enable them to interact with the software to easily perform functions, such as clocking in or accessing pay information via an audio screen reader, a mouse, keyboard and other enhancement tools that they would otherwise require from others or from a subsequent installation to their system.
“At AudioEye, we believe that everyone should be able to access and enjoy our digital world,” said Carr Bettis, executive chairman of AudioEye. “Unfortunately, individuals with disabilities are often unable to consume content provided by the companies they love. We build technology that improves the usability of people’s digital lives. Collaborating with ADP has been an exciting opportunity to provide technology that enables ADP to give their clients a personalized and enhanced experience.”
“Innovative human resources and benefits tools should be accessible to everyone,” said Don Weinstein, chief strategy officer at ADP. “Our collaboration with AudioEye is one way we’re making this happen. We’re excited about integrating their technology into our HR solutions so we can enhance the user experience for the employees of clients who may face vision, hearing and cognitive challenges.”
