Quotes

"Until now, there really was no economically viable solution on the market that would remediate in a timely manner the millions of customer communications documents produced by large organizations and government agencies. Third party accessibility organizations that manually tag documents can be too expensive and the process too time consuming to handle the massive volumes involved" said Steve Jones, vice president and General Manager of the Content Services Group at Actuate
...So on the off chance that you heard the words "I'm sad, you're losing your sight and there's nothing more we can do" what backing might you hope to help you modify your life?
...Natasha Dickinson, head of marketing and communications at the RNIB, said: "This is the perfect time to launch an integrated campaign to help us reach more blind or partially-sighted people. We were delighted to work with The Good Agency to help us achieve our goals." Other charities the agency has worked with in the past include Cancer Research UK, WaterAid, Save the Children, Mind, the RSPCA and the RSPB
Stevie Johnson from the RNIB told BBC Radio 5 live's Morning Reports: "For a long time, the emotional and practical needs of people have been overlooked."
