Alkira Software – Evolution in Digital Accessibility 

Does using our library catalogue sometimes leave you feeling like this?

 

The library catalogue is a wonderful resource for those who can see and read it, but not as great for people who might be elderly or who may not read or see quite as well. 

Introducing Alkira: the new web navigation software designed to assist people who have trouble accessing technology due to visual impairment, low literacy levels, fine motor challenges, or those from non-English speaking backgrounds.

Alkira will enable information in the library catalogue to be presented as a list of audible text prompts that step the user through routine library processes such as searching and reserving library items.

Alkira is at least 5 times faster and far more relaxing and efficient to use than leading screen readers.  It is the software that makes using the Internet as easy as having a conversation!

Come and try Alkira on the library catalogue at Cooroy or the Mobile Library, or download it at home for free.
