The dyslexic, visually impaired and blind and any other person who is not able to easily render published electronic content, need to experience the successful interaction with that content, as individuals without disabilities. This partnership delivers on OAT’s mission to achieve total user inclusiveness, empowerment, accessibility and optimized user experience of electronic published information.”
