AudioEye and Finalsite Partner to Bring Increased Digital Accessibility and Compliance Measures to K-12 Education Websites

Expanded partnership includes new growth targets and a comprehensive go-to-market strategy

AudioEye, Inc., the industry-leading digital accessibility company, and Finalsite, the leading K-12 school community relationship management platform, announced an expanded partnership, significantly enhancing digital accessibility for K-12 schools. The partnership, with new growth targets and a comprehensive go-to-market strategy, utilizes AudioEye’s platform for advanced accessibility testing and remediation.

This expansion follows the Justice Department’s new rule under Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which establishes specific requirements for web and mobile app accessibility among state and local government entities, including public schools. These entities must reach compliance within the next two years for those with populations of more than 50,000 and three years for those with 50,000 or fewer.

“Finalsite is the clear leader in education technology solutions, serving 7,000 clients in 115 countries worldwide, and their commitment to digital accessibility is unmatched,” said David Moradi, CEO of AudioEye. “Our partnership uniquely positions us to address the growing digital accessibility requirements with Finalsite’s significant presence in K-12 schools and to better serve school districts and their unique digital accessibility needs. Our expanded offerings allow for a holistic approach to digital accessibility and learning that gives every student the opportunity to succeed.”

Despite the ongoing need for accessible digital learning, many schools still struggle to meet the required standards. A nationwide study of K-12 websites in the US found that over 95 percent of school home pages had at least one detectable accessibility error, and nearly two-thirds failed at least one of the measurable Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), meaning some students and their families may not be able to access critical information or learning online.

“Finalsite considers accessibility a fundamental equality issue, not just a legal requirement. By ensuring that everyone has equal access to the valuable information provided on school websites and mobile apps, we help schools foster inclusivity, enabling them to engage with their entire community effectively,” said Jon Moser, Finalsite’s Founder and CEO. “The expanded partnership with AudioEye offers our schools even more ways to check for and remediate inaccessible content, providing peace of mind for administrators and a better experience for the communities they serve.”

Finalsite and AudioEye are dedicated to enhancing digital accessibility in K-12 education, continually innovating to deliver website and mobile app solutions that ensure every school can offer an inclusive, compliant, and user-friendly digital experience.
