c-Seven & Texthelp collaborate to empower online citizen engagement

For Immediate Release

c-Seven Inc, the Toronto based full-service web company, today announced its collaboration with Texthelp Ltd by offering BrowseAloud reading and translation support to its clients. This collaboration will improve better online access for those with print disabilities and non-native speakers in Canada.  

BrowseAloud provides worldwide leadership in online reading and translation support with more than 7,000 websites and learning platforms now using the solution. With 15 million Canadian’s unable to access information and services online, BrowseAloud is designed to make content more accessible for those with print disabilities and those who speak English or French as a second language.

Passionate about designing websites around its audience, c-Seven has accessibility and usability at the forefront of their designs.

The collaboration between the two companies is set to connect citizens by providing access to online services that matter to them most.

Speaking about the collaboration, Josh Hayter, c-Seven’s Director of Sales and Marketing said, “At c-Seven we believe that as many people as possible should have access to information that they need on the internet. That’s why we have been strong supporters of the AODA legislation which is designed to make the web accessible for Ontarian’s with disabilities.

Partnering with Texthelp will give us the opportunity to help our clients work towards the requirements of the legislation as well as offering several other innovative ways for people with disabilities to consume online content”.

David Robinson, BrowseAloud General Manager at Texthelp, added, “We are delighted to be working alongside c-Seven. As well as providing excellent web solutions, c-Seven also share our passion in encouraging more people online. Our partnership will help to remove some of the barriers faced by website visitors in today’s digital world and will ultimately make life easier for those who benefit from online services”.
