eSSENTIAL Accessibility™ A virtual wheelchair for our website
Many individuals have trouble typing, moving a mouse or reading a web page. They can’t access a website without assistive technology.
This icon ensures that a website is accessible to individuals with physical disabilities.
Organizations display this icon to certify that their site features a web-based assistive technology application from eSSENTIAL Accessibility™.
By clicking on this icon located on the upper right hand corner of our website, the user is redirected to www.essentialaccessibility.com where the application is available free of charge.
This application features an array of keyboard and mouse replacement solutions (alternative input methods including a webcam-based hands-free movement tracking system) that allow users to overcome any physical limitation to access our website. It also includes a web page reader.
The application can be rapidly downloaded and installed on a standard PC for the use of anyone who has difficulty typing, moving a mouse or reading a web page.
eSSENTIAL Accessibility™ benefits individuals with dexterity limitations that arise from a variety of conditions including:
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Cerebral Palsy (CP)
- Age-related factors
Moreover, it also helps those who have difficulty reading because of:
- Literacy deficiencies
- Limited English proficiency
- Dyslexia or similar learning issues
- Mild visual impairment
Community Living Belleville and Area is proud of its partnership with eSSENTIAL Accessibility™ in the disability community involvement initiative and we are very excited to be able to feature this innovative technology on our website.
