American assistive technology provider Vispero has announced a new solution that aims to deliver better accessibility at digital kiosks for those with sight loss.
JAWS Kiosk, a collaboration between The Paciello Group (TPG) and the Freedom Scientific brand, is focused on delivering accessible kiosk solutions through incorporation of screen reading software, and utilising accessible design and technical implementation services.
Matt Ater, vice president of business development at Vispero, said: “Kiosk accessibility has always been a consideration but is becoming a standard rather than a ‘nice to have.’
“In order to meet this growing demand, the kiosk team leverages industry-leading accessibility software from Freedom Scientific, expert consulting capabilities of The Paciello Group, and a strong kiosk industry knowledge base.”
Spearheading the initiative is Laura Boniello Miller, who recently joined Vispero after spending the past six years driving strategic sales for KioWare Kiosk Software, where she built partnerships with kiosk hardware manufacturers, kiosk device manufacturers, and kiosk application developers.
According to Miller, “Vispero is committed to the kiosk accessibility space and now brings kiosk experience to these efforts. The kiosk team leverages JAWS software and The Paciello Group’s accessibility expertise to help customers create a complete accessible kiosk solution.”
