GW Micro Announces Window-Eyes Certification Now Available

Jan-21-2014

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Fort Wayne, Indiana (January 21, 2014) – GW Micro, Inc. (www.gwmicro.com) is proud to announce the Window-Eyes Certification Program. The Window-Eyes Certification Program is a professional certification that enables individuals to test their Window-Eyes knowledge and become certified, which will demonstrate competency and proficiency in the product.

Recently, GW Micro announced a partnership with Microsoft to provide users of Microsoft Office 2010 or later a free license of Window-Eyes. “We have had a large demand for a certification program for Window-Eyes,” said Jeremy Curry, Director of Training for GW Micro. “With the advent of a no-cost screen reader solution and as the assistive technology industry expands, GW Micro is meeting demand and growing with the industry.”

The Window-Eyes Certification Program will be immediately recognized by some state agencies for people who are blind or visually impaired. Curry believes that private corporations, as well as local, state, and federal government agencies will take advantage of the Window-Eyes Certification Program as accessibility testing for websites, documents, and other electronic communication is becoming a larger part of mainstream culture. “In many government agencies, there are laws that dictate digital content must be accessible, and this is one way that GW Micro can help ensure there are knowledgeable individuals certified in Window-Eyes able to provide their product expertise to organizations that need it.”

GW Micro will be expanding their training and certification program later this year to continue to meet a strong demand. For information on Window-Eyes available for free for users of Microsoft Office, please visit www.windoweyesforoffice.com.

GW Micro, Inc. (www.gwmicro.com) has been a trusted pioneer in the adaptive technology industry since 1990, and continues to lead with innovative, customer driven solutions.
