Storm Interface teams with Tech for All on access for disabled customers
Storm Interface, a manufacturer of computer interfaces including audible system interfaces and content navigation devices, and Tech for All Inc., which makes products accessible to the disabled, have partnered to deliver accessible experiences for people with disabilities, according to a press release.
"The inter-dependence of accessible hardware and effectively designed application software is obvious," Peter Jarvis, senior executive vice president at Storm Interface, said in the press release. "However, too often ICT designers and specifiers consider the two factors of accessibility separately, as if they were unrelated." (ICT stands for information and communication technology.)
Storm works with kiosk software developers to ensure that Storm's USB-connected devices are universally supported throughout the ICT sector. By collaborating with developers such as Tech for All, Storm is able to provide clients with a complete accessibility solution.
"Our collaborative development approach produces a synergistic accessible design that delivers a successful experience for all users, including those with disabilities," said Caesar Eghtesadi, Ph.D., founder of Tech for All. "This coordinated development approach is more cost-effective and efficient than the current adapt-and-patch approach."
