VoiceThread has just launched a new accessibility option called VoiceThread Universal. VoiceThread Universal is designed for use by people who use screen-readers to access online media. Rather than being an add-on to the existing VoiceThread platform, VoiceThread Universal is a version of VoiceThread designed for compatibility with screen-readers. VoiceThread Universal removes extraneous visual and text elements and focus on providing clear and concise information. Learn more about the new service here.
