Vision Free Access is an assistive technology company, dedicated to making the Internet more equally accessible for the blind and visually impaired.
Andrew Meyer, our President, founded Vision Free Access to combat his own frustrations with the inefficient and impractical access to the Internet available through standard screen readers and web browsers. The result of his work, the Vision Free Web Browser, is an incredible breakthrough in assistive technology. A replacement for existing browsers such as Netscape and Microsoft Internet Explorer, the Vision Free Web Browser is designed specifically for users with disabilities, and has the breakthrough ability to make any website more accessible with just a few short steps. Please continue reading for more information on the extensive problems faced by the blind and visually impaired online and how the Vision Free Web Browser bridges the space between access and usability.
There are literally millions of websites that are either completely inaccessible or, at best, inefficient and impractical. Waiting for each company to spend more money on their website to make it more accessible is simply not a solution. Vision Free Access set out to discover a solution that could both lower the costs of making a site more accessible for a company and, additionally, provide a way for users to do it themselves! (While waiting for every company to become convinced...)
The Vision Free Web Browser employs a simple concept: instead of making everyone with disabilities try to figure out how to operate a website individually, why not let one person share their knowledge about a site so it only has to be "learned" once?
The Vision Free Web Browser encapsulates this concept within its unique "Accessibility Map" - a text document that includes the site's navigation menu and special instructions used to reformat each page. The menu is lifted right out of the browser and provided in an organized tree that you can navigate with the arrows on your keyboard - in the same way you browse the folders in a computer. The content is simplified, removing the visual components that don't relate specifically to the content. As a result, access to websites is more practical, efficient and independent! In many cases, a website can actually be easier to access through the Vision Free Web Browser for even those without visual disabilities!
