Swiss integration radio station Radio Blind Power values the barrier-free usability of Fabasoft’s Folio Cloud. The organisation is working together with Fabasoft towards the continuous improvement of cloud applications for people with special needs.
Radio Blind Power proves that visually impaired and blind people can work in conventional radio. Their employed software must therefore be correspondingly accessible. Barrier-free usability is especially important to Fabasoft. Radio Blind Power’s decision to use Folio Cloud shows that Fabasoft, with its on-going accessibility work, is on the right way to achieving the best possible usability for all users. All operation elements in Folio Cloud can be keyboard-operated and are enriched with WAI-ARIA technology so that screen reader programs can give blind users the feeling of a desktop application – they are informed via speech or Braille output exactly where they are and what input is required.
Radio Blind Power also delivers feedback to the Fabasoft Usability & Accessibility team, which is implemented in Folio Cloud via monthly product updates. Team leader Mario Batusic has been working in the field of web and software accessibility for 17 years and is pleased about the partnership: “Being blind myself, I look forward to receiving even more feedback from other visually impaired Folio Cloud users. Through their experiences, regular evaluations of new features and improvement suggestions we are sure to bring the accessibility level of our product to an even higher level.”
Fabasoft is now an official Radio Blind Power sponsor. The collective goal is the continuous optimisation of Folio Cloud’s accessibility. “We look forward to this partnership and to further professionalising our business.” – Dominik Hofstetter, Managing Director, Radio Blind Power.
