NoticeAbility chooses Browsealoud to make web content accessible

About the business

NoticeAbility is a non-profit organization which aims to transform how students with dyslexia feel about themselves and their education journeys. Their online courses are used in 19 states in the United States, and in 13 additional countries.  They’ve developed a new model for identifying and building the strengths of middle school students with dyslexia. NoticeAbility’s social and emotional learning courses shift students’ perspectives by letting them prove their abilities, for others to notice. The name, NoticeAbility is also a homophone for "No Disability' - which is how they see dyslexia.

The challenge

Christian Henry, NoticeAbility’s Chief Program Officer describes the challenge they were trying to overcome by implementing Browsealoud. “For our target audience, so much of the world’s information is hidden amongst text.  Decoding this text takes a phenomenal amount of mental energy and concentration for people with dyslexia. So tools to make online information accessible to a diverse audience is a key to ensuring NoticeAbility’s approach gets in front of the right students, and also reaches those teachers and parents who can relate. High listening comprehension is often a feature of our user’s profile, so making text audible was solution which met the exact need our target audience was most likely to have.”

The solution

Christain goes on to explain why Browsealoud met their needs, “Browsealoud allows NoticeAbility’s message to reach those people who believe what we do, and it also signals to others our strong commitment to inclusion. It serves as a reminder of what we value, and welcomes all to join us in spreading the word.”

I would recommend because…

“Browsealoud gives you a seamless tool for making the text content of your online materials accessible. It's indispensable for companies who care and 'get it'. We recommend it at every opportunity.”
