Montgomery, NY (PRWEB) April 15, 2014
Online Candidate, the political website design service, has partnered with eSSENTIAL Accessibility to offer its clients the option of adding an assistive technology app to their homepage when using onlinecandidate.com to build their campaign websites. The eSSENTIAL Accessibility app gives people who have trouble typing, moving a mouse or reading, the tools they need to better access the Web. Politicians who use Online Candidate to build their website and feature the app are able to better connect with and serve their constituents with disabilities by creating a more inclusive online environment.
The eSSENTIAL Accessibility app™ provides a suite of keyboard and mouse replacement solutions, among other tools, designed to help people with physical, reading and age-related disabilities get online. The app is free of charge to the end-user. Once downloaded, the app can be used on any website.
“We’ve integrated the functionality to add the eSSENTIAL Accessibility app into our content management system,” says Shane Daley, Partner at OnlineCandidate.com. “To feature the app on a campaign website is as easy as checking an option in the site setup screen.”
By choosing to feature the eSSENTIAL Accessibility app on their websites, politicians signal that they are committed to making vital online government and voter information more easily accessible to people with disabilities and to helping them increase their participation in government and their communities.
“We are pleased to help clients incorporate this improved functionality for people with disabilities,” Daley adds. “We look forward to helping campaigns and organizations better engage with voters and supporters of all backgrounds and abilities.”
“We’re excited to be working with Online Candidate and it is great to see that they are so passionate about helping their clients better reach and serve people with disabilities,” says Simon Dermer, Managing Director of eSSENTIAL Accessibility. “By embracing this technology, Online Candidate is providing its clients – politicians and government officials – with a quick and easy way to improve citizen engagement and pave the way for a truly more inclusive government process.”
