accessiBe is the leading AI-powered web accessibility solution that makes websites accessible to people with disabilities, and compliant with the WCAG, ADA, and other accessibility legislation. By using AI and automation, accessiBe significantly reduces costs and time, making web accessibility achievable for all businesses.
accessiBe‘s first stable version took 18 months of daily development in collaboration with people with disabilities. That process still continues today. Blind people, motor and visually impaired people, epileptics, and others are all a vital part of our research & development.
How Does The Technology Work?
accessiBe utilizes two applications that together achieve compliance. The accessibility interface is responsible for all the UI and design-related adjustments, while the AI-powered background process handles the more complex requirements – optimization for screen-readers and for keyboard navigation.
The accessibility interface covers about 30% of the requirements and include adjustments for readable fonts, sizing, spacing, color contrasts, cursors, emphases and more. Users have the choice between accessibility profiles, standalone adjustments, or both. The profiles bundle together common accessibility combinations that together address a specific disability, such as visual impairments, epilepsy, or ADHD.
accessiBe uses contextual understanding, OCR, and image recognition AI technologies to address the complex requirements needed for screen reader and keyboard navigation adjustments. Prior to accessiBe, these could only be achieved manually, with long, complex, and costly projects.
The AI automatically rescans a website every 24 hours after the initial remediation to ensure that all content updates and adjustments made to a website are accessible and compliant as well.
accessiBe will not change a thing for the majority of users. It will only be activated when turned on via the interface (or a Screen-reader if the user is blind), as an overlay to your website and only to the user’s specific session.
Therefore, accessiBe won’t affect your design, UI, or performance at all. The entire process is automated. From remediation to becoming complaint. Additionally, we don’t collect user data, so we don’t affect your GDPR compliance.
