The business world is beginning to understand the importance of being accessible. Over the last year, COVID-19 outbreak has forced most of us to re-evaluate our IT infrastructure and its importance it is to our organization. While private organizations are working fast to create an accessible IT infrastructure, government organizations are increasingly expected to abide by digital accessibility standards; e.g. US federal (Section 508) or EU accessibility (WCAG 2.1) requirements. Addteq’s Unstoppable app enhances accessibility to Atlassian’s Jira, Jira Service Desk, and Confluence products. Making it easier for users to read with the latest screen reader software. It also provides 508 compliance with WCAG 2.1 standards. Unstoppable is compatible with JAWS and NVDA screen readers and can be used with Chrome and Firefox browsers.
Auto Enable Accessibility
A major challenge for any organization is being able to identify all of the users that need access to accessible software. Unstoppable is able to auto-detect a user that is using a screen-reader software and auto-enables the accessibility options, without the need to contact the administrator or manager. This helps users to overcome the initial hesitation of asking for support, and may potentially overcome a legal requirement.
