Usablenet Assistive (UA) is an end-to-end web accessibility platform designed to help a company immediately and comprehensively improve web accessibility, compliance, and support for people with disabilities including users of assistive technologies, for example, blind people using screen-reading devices. Usablenet Assistive creates a dynamically generated, text-only, and accessible (compliant with standards such as ADA, Section 508, W3C, etc) view of a company’s entire web site and services. UA is not a ‘second’ site, but instead creates a dynamic accessible view of the main site that always reflects the most up-to-date content and services. As the main site changes constantly (in the way of enterprise web sites), each and every change is dynamically reflected in the accessible view created by the UA platform.
