ACE is a website accessibility tool designed to enhance the usability of websites.
A discrete but powerful application, ACE incorporates numerous different features which can be used in conjunction with one other to increase the accessiblity of any website.
The development of ACE was funded by over €500,000 as part of an EU finded project called BEACONING. ACE was created by Hands Free as our role within the project was to ensure the platform that was being created was as accessible as possible to as many as possible.
The usability features within ACE are very broad in order to support as many users to access your website, in a format best suited for them. These features include:
- Text to Speech (20 languages)
- Speech Recognition (40 languages)
- Changeable Font; including Size, Style & Colour

- Background Themes
- Screen Tinting
- Screen Masking
