Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Launches AudioEye Enabled Forms Submission for FCC.gov

AudioEye Enables Digital Consumer Complaint Submission Accessibility

TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwired - Jan 6, 2015) - AudioEye®, Inc. (OTCQB: AEYE) ("AudioEye") ("the Company") today announced that the Company has launched its Web A11y Management Platform solution for the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) secure consumer complaint submission website, which is located at https://consumercomplaints.fcc.gov/.

AudioEye's patented A11y Platform technology remediates website content and enables access for individuals with disabilities. The AudioEye solution fully optimizes the user experience across the various components of a website, regardless of the individual's method of access. For site visitors who are visually impaired and access by way of their own assistive screen reading technologies, such as JAWS or Windows Eyes, AudioEye accelerates that experience while ensuring all forms and functions made available across the website are fully accessible and usable. In addition, through the integration of the AudioEye Reader, the FCC has made available a freely accessible alternative user interface for individuals looking to engage with the Consumer Complaints website through a screen-reader-like experience. The AudioEye Reader presents site visitors with an audio version of the website and allows individuals to engage with the website using only their keyboards, while also providing users with built-in visualization tools that improve the user experience for low-vision site visitors.

"I was previously unable to submit a complaint through the FCC's website for submitting consumer complaints, as the web forms were not compatible with my JAWS screen reader or any other screen reading technology," stated Tracy Jordan, District Coordinator of Assistive Technology at Tarrant County College in Texas, who is blind and an experienced screen reader user. "Now, with AudioEye implemented across the Consumer Complaint website, I am not only able to breeze through the website and submit web forms, but the forms are very user-friendly and work exceedingly well with my screen reader. As a user of various assistive technologies, it is very encouraging to know that the FCC has taken measures to address this issue head on. Knowing that the AudioEye Reader has also been made available for all site visitors, it is clear that the FCC is committed to addressing the diverse needs of those seeking access to its site."

"We are excited about our market position and the fact that we've begun to deploy our technology with Federal Agencies," stated Nathaniel Bradley, Chief Executive Officer of AudioEye, Inc. "The importance of digital accessibility is magnified within the agencies of the U.S. Federal Government and their crucial communications, services and citizen-facing Internet and mobile solutions. We are prepared with our Web A11y Management Platform to address the most highly trafficked government websites with our patented technology, which delivers industry-first scale and full website and mobile site testing, remediation and on-going accessibility and usability monitoring."
