SeeWriteHear is your partner for digital and print accessibility.
Why is Accessibility Important?
The web is the most powerful commercial, educational, and communications tool of our age – and tens of millions of people are unable to use it. Individuals with disabilities have a right to equal access to information, and US federal and state legislation requiring online content to be accessible is being increasingly enforced. Ensuring that your organization's website is fully usable by all visitors not only helps avoid legal actions, but also expands your organization's reach to a vast new audience.
Our Mission: To pursue information equality for people with disabilities by creating content, researching new technologies, and providing education for clients at all levels of government and business. We assist clients in achieving both compliance and usability standards by delivering products and services of uncompromising quality; our team takes pride in enabling end-users of all ability levels to more fully participate in culture, study, and economy by maintaining both compassion and academic rigor in research and advocacy.
Who We Are
SeeWriteHear technology enables people worldwide to access information by developing accessible products and services that enhance the way educators, businesses and organizations deliver and access their information, media, and social interactions.
We have been closely involved in defining and authoring the standards currently used to measure accessibility compliance and usability. This depth of experience enables us to provide comprehensive and effective products and services across all areas of accessibility, from multi-format media conversion and content creation to legislative compliance consulting and barrier remediation.
What We Do
From the beginning, our primary focus has been on meeting the growing need for accessible information and technology by developing new assistive technology (AT) solutions, mass-producing top-quality media materials, and promoting both usability and regulatory compliance via expert, cost-effective consulting and remediation. SeeWriteHear aims to create a new standard in the marketplace where business and accessibility converge to provide an enhanced environment of products and services to the benefit of all consumers.
Our solution spectrum includes media conversion, compliance review, custom software development, and education consulting. Patented services, processes, and technologies form the basis of a highly varied, yet adaptable and convertible array of offerings, ensuring that our clients can execute all their accessibility goals via a single consulting firm.
