What is the Ally Toolbar?

The AudioEye Web Personalization Tools, or Ally Toolbar, allows organizations to provide their site visitors with a fully customizable user experience that is tailored to their individual needs, regardless of their device type, language preference, or preferred method of access. This goes beyond accessibility to enhance usability and inclusivity for the largest audience possible.

Complying with Section 508 and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 is about fixing digital experiences for end-users leveraging their own assistive technology. While this addresses an important need, and should be the focus of any organization, a much larger demographic of users (many of whom do not self-identify – or report – themselves as having a disability or impairment) may benefit from the availability of free user-friendly tools that allow them to customize and optimize their digital experience.

The World Health Organization estimates that between 15% – 20% of the world’s population is disabled. This means more than 1 billion people worldwide are impeded from equal access to digital content. The Ally Toolbar addresses the needs of people including those with low vision, dyslexia, color blindness, and a range of vision, auditory, mobility and cognitive disabilities.
