San Diego, CA, May 18, 2018 — Blue Sky eLearn’s award-winning Path LMS™ is in the midst of an accessibility transformation. In a forward-looking effort to give all learners an inclusive experience, Blue Sky eLearn is partnering with eSSENTIAL Accessibility to implement a comprehensive digital accessibility program. This includes automated, manual, and functional testing of their platforms, so people who rely on screen readers and other assistive technologies can use their cutting-edge learning management system with ease.
The program also includes eSSENTIAL Accessibility’s proprietary assistive technology application, which comes equipped with a suite of keyboard, mouse and touch replacement tools for people who have quadriplegia, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, arthritis and other physical disability.
“We’re proud of our mission to provide friendly and intuitive learning solutions to our customers,” says Jeremiah Kendall, CTO, Blue Sky eLearn. “By building industry-leading accessibility tools directly into our platforms, we’re able to fully live up to our mission and extend the reach of our offering to all customers, regardless of disability.”
Blue Sky eLearn’s accessibility initiatives will be featured on their Brand Disability Channel, accessed by clicking the interactive icon that is located on the homepage. On this dedicated page, visitors can download the assistive technology app for Windows computers and Android devices at no cost and learn about Blue Sky eLearn’s commitment to accessibility and enhancing the customer experience for people with disabilities.
“Continuing education and training is essential to our clients’ end users,” says Philip G. Forte, President, Blue Sky eLearn. “Allowing people with disabilities to have equal access to our platforms is another part of our effort to assist our clients with distributing their content to as many people as possible.”
“We are excited to welcome Blue Sky eLearn to a coalition of organizations that empower people with disabilities,” says Simon Dermer, managing director of eSSENTIAL Accessibility. “Through our comprehensive digital accessibility solution, Blue Sky can now provide all learners who use their platform with an inclusive experience.”
