LEEDS, England (PRWEB) January 09, 2019
Yorkshire-based charity web design company Charity Box, who specialize in producing websites for UK charities, has introduced website voice navigation to its service offering. This enables website visitors to navigate and search the website by speaking rather than clicking and typing.
“More and more people are using voice recognition technology to access information on the internet,” says Charity Box founder Matt Saunders. “Voice input is now native to all new smartphones, and sales of smart speakers such as Google Home are growing rapidly.”
It is increasingly likely that voice input will expand into other areas of technology, including navigating and locating information in mobile apps and on websites. Charity Box, who put a strong emphasis on building accessible websites, hopes to lead the way in voice navigation technology for charities.
Assistive technologies driven by voice have the potential to be revolutionary for people with various disabilities. The RNIB predict that by 2050, nearly four million people in the UK will experience sight loss. That puts a growing pressure on companies to ensure their information is accessible, and presents an opportunity for those wishing to seek solutions to this problem. As the technology and public expectations around voice recognition grows, it will become vital for charities more than anyone to keep ahead of the curve.
