Vertex Systems to Provide JAWS-Compliant Software for Blind and Vision-Impaired Community

Vertex, a provider of software solutions for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) agencies and other human services organizations, is excited to announce a new strategic partnership with Blind & Vision Rehabilitation Services of Pittsburgh. This collaboration further solidifies Vertex’s commitment to accessibility and inclusion for individuals with vision impairments by integrating JAWS – Job Access With Speech, the world’s most widely used screen reader.

JAWS enables users with vision loss to read the screen either with a text-to-speech output or by a Braille display. This allows for the navigation of the Internet, creation and analysis of documents, reading of emails, and crafting of presentations with ease, regardless of location. By incorporating JAWS into its digital offerings, Vertex aims to lower barriers and extend its reach within the visually impaired community, ensuring its software solutions are more accessible and inclusive.

This collaboration goes beyond mere compliance and accessibility enhancements. It is representative of a true partnership with Blind & Vision Rehabilitation Services of Pittsburgh, with the organization actively participating in the development process. With their help, Vertex can now develop its software to JAWS standards, allowing the organization’s employees to use the Vertex system to serve their consumers.

This initiative is indicative of Vertex’s mission to serve the diverse needs of all individuals, particularly those facing the challenges of visual impairment. By aligning with Blind & Vision Rehabilitation Services of Pittsburgh and incorporating JAWS technology, Vertex broadens its service capability and affirms its dedication to creating an inclusive digital environment.
