Better Design For All

Transform your digital experiences into a new kind of great: great for everybody, regardless of ability.

An accessible interactive experience is an experience that works for people. All people. It’s that simple. Accessibility isn’t a boring list of standards–it’s a (not so) revolutionary philosophy of inclusion. You’ve probably heard, “The digital world belongs to everybody.” It’s up to all of us to make that happen.

This is why, here, at IntuiLab we started working on accessibility enablement. Starting in Version 5.4 of IntuiFace, you'll find new features that exist to help you create inclusive experiences.

Text-to-Speech

On-the-fly conversion of both static and dynamic text into speech for the visually impaired. Designers can configure both the voice and the speed, using any language available on the target device, ensuring proper clarity and intonation.

Keyboard Events

Use a keyboard to represent touch events such as navigation and item selection. Configure any action – turn page, play video, maximize image, etc. - to be triggered when a predefined key or key combination is detected. Combined with text-to-speech and a Braille keyboard, touch experiences become accessible for the physically and visually impaired.

Gestures on Assets

Capture large, gross motor gestures for every individual item in a running experience. For example, create an on-screen trackpad for navigation. Or trigger text-to-speech without requiring perfect touch precision.

By designing with the disabled in mind, we can create products that are better for everyone else.
